Bristol Girls’ Football Team Net Wain Homes Sponsorship

A newly formed girls’ football team are dressed for success after netting a sponsorship deal with Wain Homes.

Stoke Lane Athletic FC Girls U11s are currently playing their first ever season in the Bristol Girls’ League and were in desperate need of essential training kit.

Team coach, Stephanie Hempenius, said: “As a new team, we had girls turning up for training in their own clothes unsuitable for the cold winter practise and we know it’s a lot for parents to have to buy new clothing given the current cost of living.

“We’re all incredibly grateful to Wain Homes for stepping in with a £1,000 donation which has enabled us to provide the team with training tops, rain jackets and team jumpers, giving  the girls their own identity and to look like one team when training. The girls are over the moon with it and look so smart on match days and at practise.”

Formed in 1979, Stoke Lane Athletic is a 2 Star FA Accreditation Club and play their home games at Little Stoke Park close to our Mulgrove Farm Village development. We are building a range of 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom homes and apartments at the award-winning development situated off Harry Stoke Way.

Maisie Boyd, sales and marketing assistant at Wain Homes, said: “Stoke Lane Athletic has been giving young people from the South Gloucester area the opportunity to get involved in sport for nearly 50 years and, as junior football is a great way to stay fit and meet new friends, we were proud to be able to help with the newly formed girls’ team.

“Hopefully, some of our new residents at Mulgrove Farm Village will benefit from joining this great club and we hope the Girls U11s have a successful and enjoyable first season.”
