Tania Stowe of Barking Mad has had a long association with Heacham Minors, having a son who has played with the club since moving to Norfolk.
'We are delighted to have the opportunity to support this wonderful local football club which has seen so many young players go through its' ranks over the last 50 years and is a thriving and active part of the local community, drawing children from many surrounding villages. We have seen first hand the difference that team work, discipline, commitment and fun can make in the young children's lives.
