The Coalville Town Ravenettes are kicking off the new football season with all the confidence that comes from having the full support of leading local housebuilder Taylor Wimpey.
For the next two seasons the Leicestershire-based under 15s girls’ team will play their matches in shirts bearing the Taylor Wimpey logo.
And thanks to the £750 sponsorship deal, team manager Steve Cartwright is looking forward to the season ahead with a fresh determination as the team hopes to push on and get big results.
“It’s always really exciting at this time of year as the new season gets underway,” says Steve. “And thanks to Taylor Wimpey’s generosity we can really focus on getting ready for our matches.
“Add this new level of concentration to the girls’ skills and natural enthusiasm for the game, and hopefully we can achieve something truly memorable over the next two seasons.”
The Ravenettes are not the only footballers set to benefit from the deal, as the girls are donating their old strips to KitAid, the international charity supported by Taylor Wimpey which sends old football wear to children and adults in deprived countries.
Dominic Harman, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, says: “It’s fantastic to get behind such a promising local team who are looking to build for the future and everyone at Taylor Wimpey wishes the Ravenettes every success.
“We’re also delighted that the team have shown every kindness in allowing their old shirts to go to a new home, and hopefully this will encourage people elsewhere to take up the sport.”
The Ravenettes are photographed at Taylor Wimpey’s Cedar Walk development in Birstall, Leicestershire, where one-bedroom homes are priced from as little as £99,995, two-bedroom apartments from only £122,995 and three and four-bedroom houses from just £187,995.
