Morecambe Girls FC score sponsorship from Persimmon
20 December 2022
The Under 8's team have unveiled their latest training kits courtesy of their new sponsor.
Persimmon was only too pleased to sponsor the all-girls team after keen player Evie Barwell’s aunt Amy Davies, who works for the 5-star housebuilder, approached her employer with the opportunity.
Amy, who works in Persimmon’s Lancashire HQ said “I’m my niece’s biggest fan – it’s great to watch her play a game she loves, and I’m so proud of her and her friends. When I heard that they needed a new kit sponsor I wanted to see if my employers could help through.”
Coach Lois Benson commented, “We are absolutely thrilled to have such a well-known name sponsoring the Under 8 Girls. All the coaches are incredibly proud of these girls and we are so excited to see what the future holds for these little lionesses! The girls love their new kit, so we’d like to all say a big ‘thanks’ to Persimmon!”
Persimmon Homes’ sponsorship has provided training kits and new cosy branded jackets for cold mornings on the sidelines. This week the girls proudly posed with their new gear ready for their next match against Poulton Town Under 8 Wildcats.
Anthony Mansfield, Managing Director of Persimmon Homes Lancashire said: “I’m delighted to be able to help support Morecambe FC in this way.
“We’re passionate about supporting community groups and clubs across the region, particularly voluntary organisations providing opportunities for children and young people.
“Last year our charitable Foundation donated £1.8 million to around 900 charities and community groups across the country and we’re always keen to support local causes where we can.
“We therefore wish the girls well for the rest of the season and hope their new kits help inspire them to success on the pitch.”
