Putting energy into grassroots

by Foundation of Light

Firm powering youth team.

The UK's leading energy support service provider, Hargreaves Services are showing their support for grass roots football.

Sponsoring Foundation Predators Under 8’s the team now benefit from a blue away kit and a new training kit.

Competing in the Russell Foster Youth League the team has been together for two years and play against other youth teams from Sunderland, County Durham and South Tyneside.

The team currently train one day a week and play their matches at the Russell Foster Centre in Newbottle.

Many of the boys attended Foundation of Light football courses, during school holidays and after school. One day trials were put in place for youngsters to join a team and were chosen from there.

Alan Young, Foundation Predators Under 8 Manager commented:  “To have the financial support from Hargreaves Services really helps the boys.  Before they would often have to wear bibs over their strip as there was a clash when playing against other teams.  They love their new kit and they now feel like their heroes when playing against teams and attending training wearing their new kit.”

Run by Foundation of Light volunteers, Foundation Community Clubs are a link between the Football Development department and the local community offering local children the opportunity to play competitive football.
