Honour Health is very proud to be the newest main kit sponsor of well-established local team West Jesmond Amateur Football Club!

As part of our mission to improve the health and wellbeing of the North East, each of our three Honour Health practices have pledged to support groups in their local communities who promote exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Honour Health Jesmond has therefore chosen to sponsor West Jesmond AFC, which is based at Walker Technology College.

Founded in 2004, West Jesmond AFC brings together players from all walks of life through their shared love of the beautiful game. The club began life in the Tyneside Amateur League second division, achieving promotion to the first division in 2006. The side reached their first cup final in 2007 and in 2012 achieved a staggering quadruple, winning the Tyneside Amateur League First Division, the John Hampson Memorial Trophy, the Tyneside Amateur Shield and the Neville Cowey Cup in the same season. Since then, the club has finished in the top four of the Tyneside Amateur League in consecutive seasons. Now, the Honour Health logo will be adorning the team’s home shirts for the next three years.
Our principal dentist Onkar Dhanoya said: “We are thrilled to sponsor West Jesmond AFC and we look forward to supporting them over the coming seasons. Our name reflects the fact that we are always working to improve patients’ health, and so we are very keen to support the local community in healthy pursuits and encourage people to get active.

“West Jesmond AFC is a perfect fit for us, as the club encourages local residents to enjoy playing ‘the beautiful game’ and keep fit, while our Honour Health strapline is ‘smile more – live life’, which we think ties in very well.”

James Hunter, club manager of West Jesmond AFC said: “We are delighted to team up with Honour Health in what we believe will be an excellent partnership for both parties. The new kits form part of our new club identity, which includes a new badge and social media presence, and we are confident that with the support of Honour Health we will be able to push our club to the next level.

“We are definitely on the same wavelength as Honour Health, as we both want to promote ways to live a healthier life – and to have fun at the same time. We have had that mindset throughout our 14-year history and we are always happy to welcome new players to join us that share our philosophy.”
