SW - Taylor Wimpey - Cromwell FC Under 14s

A junior football team in Newport, Wales, is celebrating after they netted a sponsorship deal with us – for the fifth year in a row!

Cromwell Youth AFC U14 A team, which plays at Lysaght Park, just down the road from our Lysaght Village development in the city, has received £570 from our South Wales business unit to cover the cost of new kit this year.

The team previously benefited from new kit as U10s, U11s, U12s and U13s, and now play in the U14s Newport District Junior Youth Football League.

Team manager Darren Little says: “Our partnership with Taylor Wimpey over the past five years has made an incredible difference to the team.

“The money we save from not having to buy our own kit is spent on much-needed training equipment such as footballs, cones and bibs – and it also means we can pay for all-weather training facilities throughout the autumn and winter months.

“On behalf of all the team, coaches and parents, I’d like to say how much we all appreciate the massive support we’ve had from Taylor Wimpey!”

Sara Taylor, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South Wales, says: “We’re absolutely delighted to be sponsoring Cromwell Youth AFC U14 A team again this year.

“As a local housebuilder, we’re very much part of the community in Newport, so it’s been fantastic seeing the team develop over the past five years and to know we’ve made such an important contribution to help this happen. We hope this season brings the club continued success!”

There’s currently a superb collection of one, two and three-bedroom properties available at Lysaght Village.
