One of Alconbury Weald’s housebuilders is supporting local youngsters in sport by sponsoring Huntingdon Girls Football Club U13s and providing the team with a brand-new football kit.

The grassroots community football club supports girls aged four and above to be active and try a new sport in a friendly environment, while providing social opportunities for them to connect with like-minded youngsters.

Suzanne Irons, Sales Director for Redrow South Midlands, said: “The Huntingdon Girls FC are a well-established organisation and an invaluable part of community life, so we are proud to support their U13 team as part of our commitment to creating thriving communities.

“The team’s dedication to encourage and empower girls as young as four years old to get active and play football is fantastic – it’s great to see the team thriving, and we hope they can continue to develop and give more local children an opportunity to try something new. It’s great to see the enthusiasm of all of the team members, we will be following them throughout the season and wish them luck in their next game!”

Lisa Mason at Huntingdon Girls FC said: “We are thrilled to be sponsored by Redrow and having a smart new kit has really helped the team to kick off the new season in style.

“Every player deserves to feel a sense of pride when they step onto the pitch, no matter their age or level. Our teams are made up of girls who have played competitive football for years, along with some who have never been on a football pitch before, so it’s great to see everyone come together and improve every time we train.”

The sponsorship forms part of Redrow’s ongoing commitment to promote health, wellbeing and excellence, with a focus on younger generations.

Rebecca Britton, Communities and Partnerships for Urban&Civic, said: “Health and wellbeing is an intrinsic part of Alconbury Weald and it’s great to see Redrow’s commitment to a great local sports club and a sport close to my heart. Whether you’ve an aspiration to play professionally or enjoy a kick about with your mates, girls football is a great way to keep active, develop confidence and life skills and meet some amazing people”
