Westcourt Homes Ltd, the Leeds based residential development arm of property investment group, Westcourt Group Ltd, are continuing investment in the very region they are creating homes by sponsoring regional grass roots football of currently unbeaten, Collingham U10s.
Tim Hodgson, MD of Westcourt Homes Ltd. commented:
‘This is the third year we’ve been involved in sponsoring and supporting Collingham Juniors U10s, and it has been an intensely gratifying experience. I’ve always felt there is a real synergy between our ethos as a residential property Group to deliver homes that instil pride for their owners and at the same time supporting the communities and youngsters that choose to live in them. As a football fan, I’m aware that grass roots football is notoriously underfunded and predominantly powered by enthusiastic volunteers. Collingham Juniors have a dedicated Coach and help from parents who give their time to training youngsters, organising matches, running coffee tables pitch side, driving the team to away games and even pushing the white line machine to create football pitches. It’s a club striving to help young footballers reach their full potential in a secure and safe environment and the results for the youngsters involved speaks for itself. The boys have played together for almost five years and sit unbeaten, top of the Selby and District division and working towards a third season victory.”
Collingham Juniors Coach, Robert Graham, added:
‘At its core, football is a game and should be enjoyed, we all take too seriously from time to time – myself included! At Collingham we focus on four key areas – technical, physiological, physical and social and we strive to develop every player that comes to the Club. Sponsorship from Westcourt Homes Ltd is so important as it helps to fund necessities to ensure we’re able to continue to run. And, on a vanity level, we’re provide a very smart kit that inspires confidence in our youngsters and demonstrates we are a professional club. I hope other businesses are inspired to consider grass roots as a potential part of their social responsibility plans.”
