13 Nov 2018

Award-winning local housebuilder, Linden Homes has generously gifted a brand-new football kit to Basingstoke-based junior football team, Hatch Warren Phoenix Embers.

Hatch Warren Phoenix Embers started life just a few years ago as a development team for players who were struggling to get opportunities to play elsewhere. The team is now starting to make its mark and has become a strong side in their own right and sit in the second of three divisions.

The club have come a long way in the past few seasons, reaching the semi-finals of the Plate Cup Competition, and have kicked off strongly this season with a number of victories. The 15 boys, aged between 11-12 who play for the club, will be looking to build on the successes of last season whilst wearing their new kits, courtesy of Linden Homes.

Trevor Wicks, Managing Director of Linden Homes Thames Valley, said: “It’s a real privilege to be able to sponsor the Hatch Warren Phoenix Embers – the boys have been doing a great job and we wish them every success in the season ahead.”
