Redrow replay for footballing youngster

A talented young Flintshire footballer has scored another deal with Redrow after his sponsorship from the housebuilder was kick-started for another season.

Last season Kai Hardcastle, 14, from Connah’s Quay teamed up with the award-winning housebuilder and received a donation to fund his kit and equipment for his place at Wrexham FC’s footballing academy.

Mum Anthea Hardcastle said they were very grateful to Redrow for the support as all the youth players need to be individually sponsored to help fund the Youth Department.

“The money is vital to secure his place at the academy, so we’re thrilled that Redrow pitched the sponsorship again.

“Kai has such fantastic potential, he’s also a member of the national Welsh development squad, and knowing that Redrow is supporting him once more is fantastic news and can only help him to grow as a player.”

Elaine Mounsey, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (NW), added: “We were really pleased to team up with Kai last year and we’re happy with the opportunity to ‘replay’ the deal.

“At Redrow we’re keen to play an active role in the communities in which we build and supporting grass roots sport is a great way of doing that.”

As well as building quality new homes, the company contributes millions of pounds each year to local services, including roads, public transport, education, parks and open space. 

Redrow’s headquarters are located in Ewloe, Flintshire and nearby, the housebuilder is building new homes in Buckley, Hawarden and Penymyndd. For more information visit
