Boys club gets new kit
Oswestry Boys and Girls Club’s under 8s players are sporting a new sponsored kit, thanks to an award of £529 from STAR Housing’s Community Chest fund.
The kit includes shirts, shorts, socks and rain jackets for all of the club’s players, worn during their training sessions and weekly fixtures across the county.
The club has been a big part of the community for over 40 years, helping to bring on young sportspeople – some of whom have reached premier league teams.
Training takes place at the clubs' pitches at Park Hall and Oswestry Cae Glas Park on a Thursday evening during the winter months.
Adam Woodcock, the club’s Joint Manager with Gary Jones, said: “We would both like to thank Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing for its generosity and support in supplying the team with their new kit for the forthcoming season.”
Martin Whitelegg, Shropshire Towns and Rural Housing’s Neighbourhoods Manager, said: “We were really pleased to be able to award this fantastic local team money to buy the kit they need.
“The club does a great job in promoting inclusion within the local community and is heavily supported by volunteers, many of whom are the children’s parents."
