Young footballers in Bradley Stoke kicked off the new season in style thanks to a sponsorship deal with Taylor Wimpey Bristol.
The U7s team at Bradley Stoke Youth Football Club (BSYFC) received a generous donation of £250 from the leading housebuilder, which is currently building high-quality new homes at its nearby Lyde Green development in Emersons Green.
The club, which is based at the Jubilee Centre on Savages Wood Road, has used the money to purchase brand new sweatshirts with the team’s initials emblazoned on the back.
Team manager Martin Lee says:
“It’s always fantastic to get sponsorship from local businesses, and Taylor Wimpey’s donation has done so much in helping our team get brand new sweatshirts.”
“For children so young, this will be their first piece of kit that belongs to them – it’s wonderful for them to have something with their club name printed on the back, and it’s something that they can be as proud of as they are of the clubs they support themselves.”
“We received funding around 14 years ago from Taylor Wimpey, and they’re sponsoring us again now. We really appreciate the donation, as this is what keeps grass root clubs like us going.”
The U7s team play regular friendly matches every week with other local teams in the area.
Charlie Joseph, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says:
“As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities which we build in, so we were only too pleased to fund some new kit for the BSYFC U7s.”
“I wish the team all the best for the rest of the football season – and I hope their new kit gives them a competitive edge on the pitch.”
The Lyde Green Sales and Information Centre is located off the Rosary Roundabout, Emersons Green East and is open daily from 11am to 5.30pm. The Sales Executive can be contacted on 0117 332 2602.
