Gloucestershire Housebuilder Supports Girls Grassroots Football Club With New Kits
10 Nov 2021

A Cheltenham-based grassroots football club has recently received a full new set of kits from local housebuilder, Linden Homes, for its under 7s girls team for the 2021-22 season.

Linden Homes, which will soon launch a new collection of properties at its Woodland View development in Bishop’s Cleeve, just one mile away from Gotherington, agreed a deal worth £500 to sponsor the new kits.

Formed in 1999, Gotherington Juniors FC currently has just short of 200 players registered, with girls teams, known as the Jaguars, running from under 7s to under 13s, and boys from under 6s to under 16s. The youngest of the girls teams, the Jaguars under 7s, are soon to enter a competitive league and Linden Homes is proud to provide the necessary kit for the team’s first ever official league fixtures.

Stephanie Spry, marketing manager at Linden Homes, said, “We’re very proud to be able to provide the girls with their first ever official kit and we can’t wait to see them on the pitch this season and beyond!

“My daughter plays for this team and as one of the only local clubs to provide organised team football for girls of this age, I know personally just how important these organisations are – not to mention how excited they all are about their new kit!”

Stewart Peters, coach at Gotherington Juniors Jaguars U7s, added, “We are a small village club with one of the lowest annual subscription rates in the area, yet we pride ourselves on still providing young people with high-quality football sessions, led by FA qualified coaches.

“As such, the sponsorship from Linden Homes means so much to the club, and each and every one of the girls on our team. They hadn’t stopped talking about it once we knew it was coming and ever since, we’ve been receiving photos of the girls donning their new kits at home! It’s great to see their excitement for the game and it’s a real feature of the club that we build relationships with local companies, to provide opportunities like this.”
