Ilkeston Town Football Club’s U17’s team are looking the part on the pitch as our East Midlands team sponsor them again for the fourth consecutive year. Our sponsorship boost of over £700 helped fund a brand-new red Nike kit for the Under 17’s at the club.
Founded in 1990, Ilkeston Town U17’s play in the Sunday Notts Youth Football League. The club has had great success in Division Three this year, becoming the undefeated league champions for the 2018/2019 season.
We wanted to continue our support with the club as part of our ongoing commitment to helping the community in and around Ilkeston, near to where we are building new homes at our Edwalton Chase development in Edwalton.
Commenting on the donation, Rob Wookey, Team Manager and Coach of Ilkeston Town U17’s, said: “We are so grateful to receive another generous donation from Taylor Wimpey East Midlands which has enabled us to provide the team with a new full red Nike kit for another season.
“Thanks to Taylor Wimpey, Ilkeston U17’s are always looking professional on the pitch, which in turn gives the team the confidence to play well.”
Rob Curry, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, said: “Clubs like Ilkeston Town FC give youngsters the chance to join a team and build new skills, which make a real difference to the lives of people in the local communities in which we build.
“We are delighted to be supporting Ilkeston Town FC for the fourth year running and are proud to see the Taylor Wimpey logo displayed on their new kits, we wish Ilkeston U17’s all the success for the 2019/2020 season.”
