A Harborough IT company sponsored the Media Player of the Year title at the Leicester City Football Club Awards held on 3rd May at the Walkers Stadium in Leicester. This was the first year that Symitry IT, who has a shop and offices on The Square in Harborough, has been involved in the annual end of season awards. The Symitry sponsored award was won by popular midfield player Richie Wellens, but the highlight for the Symitry table was meeting LeicesterCity manager Sven Goran Eriksson who chatted with staff, signed autographs and posed for photos.

“Most of our staff support LeicesterCity so we thought it would be a nice idea to show our support by sponsoring an award,”comments Symitry IT owner Rebecca Holbrough. “Meeting Sven was the icing on the cake: he was really friendly and generous with his time. In fact, it was a great night out for the Symitry team as well as for the City players!” The Media Player of the Year award was voted for by members of the local and national press and was Wellens’ second win of the night as he also took the Player of the Year title. Unfortunately Wellens, who has made 50 appearances for LeicesterCity this season, was unwell and so his award was collected by teammate Paul Gallagher. “As sponsors, we had to remain impartial,” comments Rebecca. “However, we were pleased to see the award go to such a worthy winner and we were delighted to be able to show our support for our local team.” The evening was hosted by Club Ambassador Alan Birchenhall and attended by all of the Leicester city first team.

Based in Harborough since 2005, Symitry IT sells a range of computer hardware, software and audio visual equipment at their shop on The Square. The company is part of a group which includes Symitry North and Symitry Business Services based at their St Mary’s Road offices providing small to medium sized companies with IT and software support as well as an online service and retail operation for nationwide customers.
