Tenbury United Dressed For Success
The footballers of Tenbury United Youth Football Club are training in style thanks to new tracksuit tops and warm jackets purchased with a grant from the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust.
Established in 1879, Tenbury United is the oldest known amateur football club in Worcestershire. The historic first team is supported by a vibrant youth team structure which takes in children and adolescents from ages 7 to 17. The team coaches not only work to nurture talented boys and girls, but also to encourage all of the players to engage in, and enjoy, physical activity.
To keep the eager footballers warm over the cooler months, the club asked for, and received, £2,825 from the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust. The funds have been used to purchase professional tops for training sessions and warm jackets to insulate the young substitutes.
Club representative, Lesley Newall, commented:
“Tenbury United Youth Football Club has provided local children with a safe, fun and social space for many years. Our competitive teams and training sessions offer a great opportunity for youngsters to stay physically active and learn about the importance of teamwork. The training tops give our players a real sense of pride every time they pull them on”.
John Garbutt, Chairman of the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust, added:
“Having the right kit is fundamental to the enjoyment of any sporting activity. We are therefore extremely happy to be able to provide this funding to Tenbury United. We hope the training uniforms will provide further encouragement for the young people to continue to pursue a healthy lifestyle.”
