Weddington Thistle Juniors sign winning partnership
We showed our support for young local football players by donating more than £1,000 to Weddington Thistle Junior Football Club’s U18s, which play in the Tamworth Junior Football League.
Cherelle Brandy from Taylor Wimpey’s Milby Hall at the Farm development with the Weddington Thistle Junior Football Club Under 18s in the new Taylor Wimpey sponsored kit.
Our donation will be used to provide 16 away shirts for the match day squad and 20 sweatshirts for the whole squad.
Stewart Pratt, Team Manager, says: “We hadn’t got enough funds for the away shirts, which the league specifies you need in case of a colour clash with your opponents, so this donation has really helped us out.
“And getting the sweatshirts for the players is a real bonus – they’ll be great for training as the weather gets colder and will really make them feel part of the team when they’re turning up for matches.
“Big thanks to Taylor Wimpey for helping us out; it’s much appreciated by myself and the lads!”
Anne Wallace, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, adds: “We are delighted to be sponsoring Weddington Thistle Junior Football Club and hope they have a successful season wearing their new kit!
“As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes. This partnership with Weddington Thistle is a great example of the way we can help clubs and organisations which play such an important role in local community life.”
