West Bridgford Colts Reds and Blacks Under-14 Girls have received a new kit, thanks to sponsorship by Greener Gardens, the West Bridgford-based independent lawn care specialists.
The U14 girls team consists of 35 players and whilst playing in two teams, the format of this inclusive team over the last five years is to train as one group and share social activities during the year. Both teams are enjoying a good start to the first season playing 11-a-side.
Gary Marshall, head of girls’ development at West Bridgford Colts, said: “We are extremely grateful to Greener Gardens and all sponsors for their sponsorship.
“It’s through partnerships like this that we’re able to continue providing the infrastructure that is essential in keeping our club running smoothly.
“We’re the biggest club in the country with over 95 teams and over 1,400 kids training and playing weekly in matches all over the region.
“The girls make up the fastest growing section of the club and it’s great.
“West Bridgford Colts is not just about football development, but also personal development, team building and confidence.”
Owner of Greener Gardens, John Draper, said: “We have followed the development of the squad over recent years and are proud to support the Reds and Blacks.
“As a long-standing and established local business, we were more than happy to help, supporting a local side and be a small part of giving something back to West Bridgford Colts, which offers such a fantastic outlet to the local girls and football.”
