A new junior football team in Shifnal has kicked off its first season in style after scoring sponsorship from Redrow.
The recently formed Shifnal Harriers Hawks Under 11s team plays its home games at Idsall School in Coppice Green Lane, just 200 yards from Redrow’s Aston Fields development.
Ruth Evans, treasurer of Shifnal Harriers JFC, explains: “The under 11s is a new team for this season, playing in the Telford Junior League and is also entered into the Shropshire County Cup. Receiving sponsorship from Redrow is a major boost for the club as without it the team would probably have had to make do with an old kit until funds were available to purchase a new one. The team will wear the new kit for two years after which it may be passed down to another team for a further season – so we’ll be wearing Redrow’s name with pride for some time yet.”
The under 11s are managed by Shifnal Harriers JFC vice chairman Dave Bott, who’s previously managed cup and league winning teams.
Pauline Turnbull, sales director for Redrow Homes (Midlands), added: “Supporting sports at grass roots level is important to us. When we heard that Shifnal Harriers JFC were starting a new under 11s’ team we were happy to step in and offer sponsorship to enable them to purchase a new kit. We wish them the best of luck for the season ahead.”
