GRASSROOTS WINNERS - Thurmaston Magpies U11's

Added 08 Dec 2016 by GFORCE

A boy’s football club has scored a top donation from a leading Leicester-based sportswear company.

Thurmaston Magpies FC U11’s has received a brand new tracksuit top for each of their players courtesy of the GFORCE Grassroots Campaign, which aims to provide financial support to help local sports teams and clubs from across the region achieve their aspirations.

The tops, worth over £600, were needed for the cold winter months.

Stuart Dronfield, coach of the Thurmaston Magpies U11’s, said: “I applied for funding from GFORCE grassroots because we really needed tracksuit tops for the boys to keep them warm during the winter months at training and match days. The subs we collect just don’t cover the cost for extras like that.

“We were thrilled to be told we had been successful and it was great to be able to be part of the design process. I gave GFORCE an idea of our team colours and that I would like the team name on the back and then I was given a few designs to pick from.

“We are more than happy with the quality of the tracksuit tops and the boys look really smart on match days in their matching tops. The kids are really pleased and a lot of the other managers and parents have commented how good they look. I would like to thank GFORCE for their very generous donation.”

GFORCE Teamwear launched the campaign earlier this year to reinforce its commitment to grassroots sport by setting aside a £5,000 pot of money which organisations in the East Midlands could apply to for grants, with a maximum value of up to £750 per team or club.

Simon Ward, sales director at GFORCE, said: “The GFORCE Grassroots campaign exists to reward the dedication, passion and success of sports teams and clubs from across the East Midlands just like the Thurmaston Magpies. The team look great in their new tops and we are really pleased that they have gone down so well with all concerned. We wish them the very best for the future,

“Our company has a proud history of supporting the local community and we are looking forward to giving out more grants to help local sports clubs over the coming months.”

GFORCE, based on London Road in Leicester, is a high performance sports brand offered by Gymphlex Ltd – member of a group of companies, also including Leicester-based uniform specialists Grahame Gardener Ltd.
