Horncastle girls football team scores kit winner!

Added 12 Nov 2019 by GFORCE

A girl’s football team from Horncastle has hit the back of the net after receiving a new kit from leading sportswear provider, GFORCE Sportswear.

The girls’ team of Horncastle Town Football Club, who train at The Wong, has received some fully bespoke kit worth £750 from the 2019 GFORCE Grassroots Campaign, which aims to help sports teams and clubs achieve their aspirations.

Horncastle Town FC has had a girls’ team playing league football for the past six years. Starting with just one team, the club now have a girls U12s and U14s side with approximately 30 girls participating in football at the club each week and some girls also playing mixed league football on a Sunday, too. The girls play regular fixtures in the Mid Lincs Youth League and the club’s main ethos is for girls to have fun and improve their skills which they can put into practice on match days. A range of volunteers coach the players and the U14s were winners of the league Sportsmanship Award last season – something the whole club are extremely proud of.

The club applied to the Grassroots Campaign to kit out the U12 girls with new jackets.

Nicola Fawcett, from Horncastle Girls Football Team, said: “We decided to use the funding from the GFORCE Sportswear campaign to provide our U12 girls team with new jackets so that they could arrive to matches and training feeling proud to represent the club and make them feel part of a team by all looking the same.

“We have been really impressed with the new jackets as they are excellent quality and I am sure they will survive for more than one football season. GFORCE Sportswear were very patient with us as we contributed to the design of the garment and we are so happy with the final product. The girls look so smart and can't stop smiling whilst wearing them, in fact, they have said they will be wearing them out and about and not just for football which shows how proud they are to be members of Horncastle Town FC!

“I would like to say a huge thank you from the entire team here at Horncastle Town FC for choosing us for the Grassroots prize this season.”

After three successful years of the GFORCE Grassroots Campaign, a total of £15,000 has been donated to clubs and teams across the Midlands so far. For 2019, the company set aside an additional pot of £5,000 to help provide kit to clubs in this region and reinforcing the brands commitment to grassroots sport.

Simon Ward, sales director at GFORCE Sportswear, said: “We are so pleased to hear that the U12 girls’ team at Horncastle Town FC are happy with their new jackets. The club are obviously doing a lot within their community to encourage girls into football, so it is fantastic for us to be able to support them by providing this new kit.

“The GFORCE Grassroots campaign exists to reward the dedication, passion and success of sports teams and clubs, just like Horncastle Town FC, from across the Midlands and it reinforces our commitment to grassroots sport.”
