Youngsters playing for Greenwich and Bexley-based Junior Reds Football Club are running out in a brand new strip this season thanks to £500 sponsorship from our South East region.
We paid for a full set of kit for the Under-15 Valiants side, managed by Rob Pierson, which is one of the 49 youth and adult squads that are part of the thriving club run entirely by volunteers.
Club secretary Clive Chivers said: “Running a football team for the benefit of the local community is surprisingly expensive and such sponsorship is a welcome boost to all our helpers. The under-15 team are now well equipped for the season ahead.”
Linden Homes South East managing director Steve Bangs added: “We’re delighted and very proud to be supplying a brand new set of kit for Junior Reds Football Club which does so much excellent work with its youngsters.
“It’s important to us to go beyond delivering quality homes and to honour our pledge to invest in people too. Everyone at the office will be cheering on the Reds this season!”
The Valiants Under-15s team plays at King George’s Field in Longlands Road, Sidcup, near Old Bexley where Linden Homes recently launched its Heritage Gate collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and three and four-bedroom townhouses.
Over £133m has been committed by Linden Homes to improving local communities since 2010.
