Bridgend football team scores funding boost

18 October 2021

A Bridgend football team has hit the back of the net with a grant towards new training equipment and kit.

Sunday league team Brynach FC has scored £1,000 through our Community Champions scheme.

The club was recently created by residents of our Dol Yr Ysgol development in Brynmenyn to increase community spirit.

Alex Thompson, of the club, said: “A huge thank you to Persimmon Homes for this generous donation.

“We are completely self-funded so this money will be used towards new training equipment and team kit.

“We have worked very hard to bring the estate community together and this is a big step forward for us.”

Sharon Bouhali, sales director at our West Wales region, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Brynach FC.

“When we build new homes, as we’ve done at Dol Yr Ysgol, we’re also building communities. It’s great to see this area flourishing and I’m sure many of the residents will take pleasure from this new football team.

“It’ll be great to see how it develops from here and it’s a privilege to be a part of that.”

Dol Yr Ysgol is now sold out, but Llys Ystrad on Llangewydd Road in Bridgend has now launched.
