Young players from Didcot Casuals FC will be stepping on to the pitch in style this season thanks to a sponsorship deal with us.
The club’s U10s team have been provided with brand new football kit and training jackets, funded by a donation from our Oxfordshire business unit, which is building new homes at our nearby Great Western Park development in Didcot.
Rob Mills, Manager of Didcot Casuals U10s, says: “This sponsorship from Taylor Wimpey makes a massive difference to the players – they’re growing all the time and so they’ve grown out of their old kit, which in any case gets tatty over time.
“Wearing proper kit in a match really makes them feel they are representing the club and the waterproof training jackets will be great to protect them against the weather during the winter. We’re really grateful to Taylor Wimpey for their support.”
There are currently 12 players in the U10s squad who play 7-a-side in the Oxford Mail Youth Football League.
They currently play at Brasenose Park in Didcot, but hope to move to the pitches at our Great Western Park’s Boundary Park as the community and sports facilities take shape.
Work started earlier this year on a new sports pavilion set within Boundary Park and is expected to be completed next summer.
Rob adds: “As a club, we’re helping to develop youngsters in Didcot and it’s great to see Taylor Wimpey also contributing to the community as the town expands. We’re looking forward to benefiting from the new sports facilities at Great Western Park when they’re up and running.”
Rob Roslyn, Chairman of Didcot Casuals Football Club, says: “We are grateful to Taylor Wimpey for their very generous support of our U10 Blue team, especially as this has provided the youngsters with new training jackets in addition to new kit. It is only through the continued support of sponsors like Taylor Wimpey that grassroots clubs like Didcot Casuals can provide football opportunities within the local community.
“As Didcot continues to expand, there will be more and more youngsters and adults wanting to get involved in sport, and we are looking forward to being able to use the new facilities at Boundary Park to help meet this growing demand, with the help of sponsors like Taylor Wimpey.”
Nikki Gibson, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Oxfordshire, says: “We’re delighted to be supporting Didcot Casuals U10s and hope they enjoy wearing their new kit.
“Football clubs play an important role in bringing communities together, so it’s great to be able to help them in this way.”
There’s a selection of two and four-bedroom homes currently available to reserve at Great Western Park, while Boundary Park at Great Western Park offers a range of three and four-bedroom properties.
