Elcons Employment Law Consultants Ltd have signed a sponsorship deal with the Saints to become their official Human Resources Partner, with their ELCONS logo featuring on the rear of the Club’s home and away playing shorts across all Men’s and Women’s teams for the next three seasons.
Elcons was established by Managing Director John Peel in 2008, after his 15 years’ of experience in the industry identified that there was a gap in the market to develop a HR and Health and Safety Consultancy that could deliver a more efficient, bespoke and personal service.
“We are delighted to partner with John and his team at Elcons” explained Saints General Manager, Dave Hutchinson. “From the first meeting we held with them, we knew they were the right Partner for us as they demonstrated a clear vision for their business and how we could benefit from working with their personal advisor service.
“We pride ourselves on our duty of care to all employees, from players, staff and our Matchday team and Elcons business ethics are a great fit for us in improving how we interact with everyone who is employed here at Saints.
“We look forward to working with them for the next three seasons.”

CP Electronics Completes Refurbishment Hat-Trick with Wolverhampton Wanderers FC

UK’s leading lighting and energy controls specialist CP Electronics has helped revamp parts of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC’s Molineux Stadium with a range of innovative lighting control solutions.
The work follows Wolves’ promotion back to the English Premier League. To suit their newly-found status as one of UK’s top football clubs, the main boardroom, chairman’s suite and manager’s lounge were all given a refurbishment.
CP’s controls were chosen to not only save energy, but also help boost corporate hospitality and entertainment through intelligent scene-setting. This included CP’s flagship RAPID fully addressable control system, allowing the main boardroom to have up to eight different scenes.
A Lethal Strike Partnership
Leading the electrical contracting work was CKW Contracts. Based in Four Ashes, Wolverhampton, the company has been a longstanding user of CP’s solutions, citing factors like outstanding customer support, design services, level of stock and ease of programming and wiring as reasons for the partnership.
“We have worked with CP Electronics for many years and have always found that they come up trumps with their lighting controls and offering,” said Stuart Walters, Managing Director of CKW Contracts.
“On this particular project, we chose CP’s products as we know they are easy to install, and our engineers find the technology very user friendly. We had to ensure everything was completed as quickly as possible so that the facilities could be used for the next season.”
Project work began as soon as the 2017/18 season finished and was completed in less than three months. To ensure the lighting was as efficient as possible in the chairman’s suite and manager’s lounge, CP’s Vitesse Modular system was commissioned to control the lighting.
The system itself is highly versatile. Using a modular design, it allows users to add ‘modules’ to the system with a ‘plug and play’ setup, giving Wolves additional flexibility if changes are required to the lighting in future.
Installed with standalone daylight linking occupancy detectors, the detectors enabled automatic dimming according to the amount of daylight coming in through the windows. The key advantage of CP’s detectors is the ability for users to dim lights manually.
Absolute Scenes
As well as the saving energy, the lighting controls also had to impress guests in Wolves’ main boardroom. Used for conferences, matchday hospitality and functions such as weddings, the multifunctional room required a variety of different lighting scenes to set the appropriate tone.
Providing this functionality was CP’s RAPID system. Using a scene plate, this fully addressable system enables Wolves’ team to operate eight different pre-programmed scenes. Scenes included simply controlling perimeter lights, through to dimming them to an optimal level for presentations, and even a disco lighting setting.
“While football is the main revenue generator, we understood that Wolves also do a lot of business through the corporate side. To that end, their main boardroom needed to excite,” said Walters.
“Not only does CP’s RAPID system give the space that wow factor, it’s also easy to control for the end users, and with a fully addressable system, it can be easily re-programmed if required. What impressed us most was that CP even sent one of their own engineers up to programme the system once it was all installed.”
On completion of the project, Lee Austin, Area Sales Manager for CP Electronics, said “This project has really demonstrated what CP Electronics is all about – innovative lighting controls, the fantastic customer support we can offer, and the commitment to help our customers meet tight deadlines.
“We are delighted to have worked with such a high-profile club with a great history, and it’s been a pleasure to partner with CKW Contracts once again.”
