A north Norfolk girls’ football team has scored big - after being kitted out for the new season.
North Walsham Youth Football Club, Girls Under 12’s, who train at Manor Road School, are set to kick off the new football season in style with a brand new training kit purchased thanks to a £400 donation from Anglian Home Improvements.
Nick Hindle, team chairman, said: “Our aim is to enable as many young people as possible to play and flourish in football. With enthusiastic qualified coaches, we are proud that the club has a host of different teams for girls, boys and young adults. From mini-kickers to under 18s and a ladies’ team, we are all inclusive.
“We are all so thankful to Anglian for its generous donation. Not only will the team look the part for the new season in their training kit, but this gesture of support also helps to foster a great sense of team spirit and positivity among the players.”
Founded over 30 years ago, North Walsham Football Club has a long and successful history of developing youth football in Norfolk.
Many players progress to play senior football for local clubs, and enrol within the England Youth Team and Norwich City Academy.
Mark Ottaway, Managing Director London North and East Anglia for Anglian Home Improvements, said: “As a company we are passionate about showing our support for the local community. It is fantastic to see the team sporting the Anglian logo and we wish them the best of luck for their season ahead.”
