Caersws football

A Caersws football team has scored a brand new football kit for the members of its under 9 side after Wales & West Utilities stepped in to pay £300 for the matching gear.

The company, which operates the gas distribution network across Wales and the south west of England, has provided the donation to Caersws Junior Football Club so they can buy matching kit for the members of its boys’ team squad to face their opposition in style.

Wales & West Utilities offered to donate money to the club after previously providing match funding of £300 following a successful end of season festival, which took place to raise vital funds for the club. The new kit is now sponsored by the utility company and has let the team kick off the new season.

 Wales & West Utilities Technician for Wrexham and Mid-Wales, Carl Lewis, is heavily involved in the club and said:

“We have so many youngsters involved in our club and this donation has, for the first time, let the under 9’s to all wear matching kit. The team are delighted that Wales & West Utilities have provided the donation and we are proud to wear shirts carrying the company’s logo. We are very grateful for their support and are looking forward to the coming season.”

Elizabeth Warwick, Communications Manager at Wales & West Utilities, added:

We are committed to supporting the communities we serve, and it was our pleasure to be able to support Caersws Football Club and sponsor their under 9’s football kit.”
