News and Projects that the Trust Has Funded
Leominster Town Minors All Kitted Out
Leominster Town Minors Football Club are set for success with new kits, goal posts and goal keeper training, all provided thanks to a grant from the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust.
The club, formed after the merger of Leominster Town and Leominster Minors, provides opportunities for over 200 girls and boys from across the region to play the beautiful game.
The team successfully applied for funding from the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust, receiving over £2,100. The money has been used to purchase full kits for both the youth and junior sides, along with three new sets of 7-aside goal posts to be used in matches and training.
It also means the club has been able to offer dedicated shot stopper training as Club treasurer, Debbie Stringer, explained: “Most children want to be the next Wayne Rooney and the goal keeping position is the last spot they are willing to take on. The Community Trust funding has allowed us to deliver proper and specialised training for all of our junior level keepers, helping to boost their skills and confidence.”
John Garbutt, Chairman of the Trust commented: “Football has a special place in the hearts of many of our children. Clubs such as the Leominster Town Minors give them the chance to live out their passion whilst staying fit and healthy and the Trust was therefore more than happy to provide them with funding.”
