A football club in Ipswich are sporting fresh new kit after renewing their sponsorship deal with our East Anglia team.
We sponsored Ransomes Sports FC’s U16s team for the second time, by donating £1,500 for brand new kit and tracksuits for the 2017/18 season.
The team will play home and away matches wearing the new strip consisting of a red top emblazoned with the Taylor Wimpey logo on the front, red shorts and socks, with tracksuits to match.
Jason Hiskey, Team Manager of Ransomes Sports FC U16s, says: “On behalf of the club officials and myself, I’d like to say a huge thank you to Taylor Wimpey for sponsoring us for another football season.
“As a result of Taylor Wimpey’s donation last season, we have been able to focus entirely on playing football and our U16s team have gone from strength to strength – we won the league and were able to compete in the Suffolk County Final last year!”
Ransomes Sports FC originated as Fisons Football Club, formed in 1948, and are run entirely by volunteers. The club rely on donations from organisations and the local community to continue using the training facilities available in the area. The team practise once a week at Whitton Sports and Community Centre, in Whitton Church Lane, and play home matches at Ransomes Sports Centre in Sidegate Avenue.
Jason adds: “We really appreciate that a company like Taylor Wimpey recognises how important football is to the young people within our community.
“Without donations like this, grassroots football teams like ours would simply be unable to survive so to be sponsored by Taylor Wimpey again is incredible.”
Caroline Carter, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes, so we were delighted to purchase new football kits for Ransomes Sports FC U16s.
“We hope all of the players enjoy wearing their new kit and wish the club every success for the future, both on and off the field.”
Our Violet Gardens development in Kirton currently offers a range of four and five-bedroom homes.
