In support of a local girls’ football team, Bridgnorth Endowed has come to the rescue over a predicament that left players without any kit.
The Bridgnorth Town Juniors U12 girls’ team experienced some disappointment when their kits were delayed in production following disruption caused by coronavirus.
Manager, Dave Greenwood, approached the school for help and the BES PE Department responded by sending its new match kits for them to use until theirs arrive.
PE teacher, Mr Chase, said: “We were more than happy to help out and are always keen to support clubs in the local community wherever possible.”
Outside school, Mr Chase is the lead for girls’ football at Bridgnorth Town Juniors, which now has three female teams up and running.
He comments: “Thanks to the FA Game of Our Own initiative and the FA Wildcats Centres, we’ve been able to develop girls’ football in Bridgnorth and offer more opportunities for local girls to get involved.”
“Interest in the sport is certainly growing amongst girls in the town and we’re extremely pleased that Spartans has also come on board by launching some new girls’ teams this season.”
