The future's bright for orange shirts
17 September 2021
A Rugby-based female-run football club is celebrating a £1,000 windfall which will boost its training facilities and help bring new players into the ranks.
With the return of football following the pandemic, Rugby Borough Women and Girls Football Club was in need of training equipment to help its coaches educate and develop new talent at its Kilsby Lane base.
The club, recognisable for its famous orange shirts, approached Persimmon, requesting a donation from our Community Champions programme.
To the delight of club members they were successful, as spokesperson David Hope explained: “This is great news. The new equipment will help our coaches deliver extensive training drills and improve what we can offer the community.
“The Women’s & Girls’ teams are always looking to bring in new players, and this will demonstrate to all that we are heading in the right direction.”
Central sales director Sarah Preston added: “As a company we want to invest in local good causes through our Community Champions programme. The female sections of Rugby Borough does a great job inspiring women and girls into sport and we are pleased to help them acquire some much-needed new training resources.”
