Players at Chinley Juniors Football Club in the High Peak will be keeping the heat on their opponents after securing a sponsorship deal with Wain Homes.
A number of players live at our Forge Manor development in Chinley and we have donated £640 to provide training rain jackets for both the Under 13s and Under 14s teams which play in the Stockport Metro League.
Billy Barrett, treasurer and joint secretary at Chinley Juniors FC said: “Our players train at Chapel-en-le-Frith High School which, as you can imagine, is exposed to some extreme weather during the winter months.
“We are grateful to Wain Homes for their kind sponsorship which will mean our players can wrap up warm whilst they train, making football even more enjoyable for our juniors and will also make us look smart on matchdays when we represent Chinley.”
Chinley Juniors FC was established in 1999 and currently has around 120 boys and girls from the local area playing regular football across teams ranging from U9s to U15s.
Nathan Bullough, regional marketing co-ordinator at Wain Homes, said: “Clubs like Chinley Juniors are so important to the community, giving local children the opportunity to play sport, keep fit, enjoy being part of a team and build lifelong friendships.
“We also recognise the hard work of all the volunteers who give up their time to coach, organise and run the club so we were happy to offer our sponsorship and we hope the football they play will be as stylish as their new training gear!”
