Young Nottinghamshire footballers are ready for the winter season thanks to a £530 sponsorship boost from our East Midlands team. Gedling Southbank FC put the funds towards a collection of ten brand new Nike branded winter jackets for it’s Under 9’s team.

Gedling Southbank FC’s first junior team was founded in 1992 and they play their games in Arnold, Nottinghamshire. The club now has over 400 players signed to it, from the ages of four up to senior level.


Daniel Allen, Under 9’s team coach at Gedling Southbank FC, said: “We cannot thank Taylor Wimpey enough for such a generous donation. Winter is a difficult period to play in for everyone and when the temperatures drop, it becomes very hard to stay warm and concentrate on playing.

“The sponsorship boost of £530 to purchase ten brand new Nike winter jackets is the perfect way to keep our lads warm whilst they’re training in those freezing conditions.”


Rob Curry, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, said: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our new homes, so we were delighted to be able to help Gedling Southbank FC Under 9’s team and provide them with new winter jackets.

“We hope the lads all like their new jackets and wish the team all the best for the upcoming season.”
