Grass Roots football: Newcastle East End get cash life-line
According to the Journal, Kelly Scott, chairman of Newcastle East End FC, is delighted with the donation and hopes it can inspire the lads on the pitch.
She said: “We often find that it’s not as easy to find sponsorship for our disability teams, so when Taylor Wimpey offered their support to The Wolves we were absolutely thrilled.
“The Wolves is more than just a sports and social outlet for the squad.
“Players gain confidence and empowerment from playing football so Taylor Wimpey is really reaching out to people who need it and doing something truly fantastic with this sponsorship.
“The entire football club is extremely proud to be affiliated with such a high-profile company, and we hope the sponsorship will empower players on the disability team by giving them the confidence to grow from strength to strength.”
The Wolves team plays in the Russell Foster League and feature a broad spread of ages and abilities, allowing members to share a common interest while socialising with their peers.
Sponsorship cash has been made available from Taylor Wimpey’s new development, The Maples.
The development is situated in the suburban Hebburn area, a few miles away from where the club plies its trade.
Hayley Stewart sales manager at Taylor Wimpey North East said: “Here at Taylor Wimpey we always endeavour to create strong links with the local communities in which we build, so we couldn’t be happier to be supporting a club that is so core to Tyne and Wear.
“As soon as we found out about The Wolves, we knew we just had to jump on board and do whatever we could to support the team. Hopefully our sponsorship will encourage these inspirational players to continue doing what they love.
“We’re so excited to launch a partnership between The Maples development and Newcastle East End FC, and we wish the best of luck to The Wolves and the rest of the club this season.”
