Football team kicks off maiden season with sponsorship from Redrow

A new football team playing in the Stockport Girls League has been kitted out by Redrow Homes.

Queensgate FC teamed up with the homebuilder via its Woodford Community Fund, scoring an £800 sponsorship deal to enable the girls’ team to kick off its first season in style.

Team coach Jason Morris said: “The team only formed in August so the players were excited to receive sponsorship from Redrow. It’s made a massive difference to us and we have been able to purchase kits, training tops and training equipment with the proceeds. We’re grateful to Redrow as without the sponsorship we would have had to pass the cost on to the parents.”

The Cheshire FA has set out to double the number of females taking part in football by 2020 with a localised plan to help achieve the goal.

All games in the Stockport Girls League will be played at a central venue at the new 3G Facility at the Sea Shell Trust in Cheadle, Stockport.

Redrow offered Queensgate FC ‘home town’ support as the team trains at Bramhall High School, just a few miles from Woodford Garden Village. The landmark development will eventually comprise almost 1,000 new homes, a primary school, shops, pub and no fewer than 19 areas of play, parks or public open space.

The Queensgate FC sponsorship is one of the many projects in the local area being backed by a Redrow community fund, which to date has distributed grants of around £15,000.

Anna Evans-Kerr, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “Sports clubs like Queensgate FC are great for bringing the community together. They play a key role in helping young people stay fit, healthy and active while also developing team spirit and confidence. Woodford Garden Village will eventually include sports pitches too and so when we heard that Queensgate Fc was starting a new team we were happy to step in and kit the players out.”
