The Radisson Red Glasgow Rocks are happy to announce that they are welcoming ECS Ltd as proud sponsors of Glasgow Rocks Academy’s ‘Avengers’ and ‘Bulldogs’ Teams.

ECS Ltd carries out a significant amount of work in ensuring the safety of residents in social housing through regular electrical testing, maintenance and repair services.

They are the headline sponsor for our Glasgow Rocks Academy as the Rocks attempt to build upon a successful first season, under both Academy Director Gareth Murray and Glasgow Kelvin College.

ECS Ltd are thrilled to be sponsoring this programme. Peter McGowan, Managing Director, ECS Ltd. said, “We signed up to this inspirational initiative earlier this year, it is so exciting for us to see how the GKC Rocks Academy is growing and the students are making such great progress, both on the court and in the classroom. We look forward to seeing the future success of the Avengers and the Bulldogs players.”

Students attend college and carry out their chosen studies alongside a basketball programme. Rocks Academy students receive up to three hours a day of individual and team development alongside an individual structured strength and conditioning programme.

Academy Director, Gareth Murray commented, “The Academy offers young people the opportunity to stay in education whilst at the same time having the structure of a semi-professional sports programme.” He continued, “With 2 teams currently playing in the Senior Local Men’s league, we are now looking to introduce a ladies programme in the future”.

Owner and Director of the Glasgow Rocks, Duncan Smillie added, “Our academy partnership with Kelvin College is now enhanced by the sponsorship from Peter McGowan and his team at The ECS Group. You often meet organisations that talk about having a strong social conscience then you meet others that actually back that up with investment such as this, we are super excited about this partnership and it allows us to do more for the 20+ young guys that are in our academy.”

ECS Ltd, opened a new office in Glasgow earlier this year and are proud to be supporting the local community and helping young adults succeed.
