U10 rugby team scores brand new kit

Added 25 Feb 2019 by GFORCE

A rugby team from Leicester is celebrating after receiving some brand new sports kit from a local company.

Old Newtonians Rugby Football Club, which was founded in 1904, has received £750 from the GFORCE Grassroots Campaign which aims to provide financial support to help sports teams and clubs from across the Midlands achieve their aspirations.

The club, which has a number of adult teams, has recently established a Junior Academy for 5-11 year olds that is going from strength-to-strength. So much so that the under 10s have qualified to play at Welford Road in the final of an area cup competition next year. The funding from the Grassroots Campaign has provided the under10’s team with some much-needed bespoke showerproof jackets.

Matthew Weir from Old Newtonians, said: “Our Club prides itself on its strong community foundations and family friendly ethos. We endeavour to develop players to enjoy a lifelong love of our sport through which friendships for life are formed and actively encourage young people to participate. With the majority of our players and coaches derived from the local area, we are volunteer-run and play a strong positive role in the life of the community we serve.

“We have exciting expansion plans for our Junior Academy and were delighted to receive the support from the GFORCE Grassroots Campaign which meant we could provide these bespoke shower proof jackets to our Under 10 teams, especially during these winter months.

“We’re really pleased with the final design and we’ve already had comments from parents about them purchasing some! A huge thanks to GFORCE for their support of grassroots sport and helping us to get things off the ground. It has been a pleasure working with everyone involved.”

After two successful years in which GFORCE Sportswear’s Grassroots Campaign made 12 donations at a total of £10,000 to clubs and teams across the Midlands the company has again set aside a £5,000 pot of money for 2018 reinforcing its commitment to grassroots sport.

Simon Ward, sales director at GFORCE Sportswear, said “We are delighted that the Old Newtonians U10’s are pleased with their new jackets which were designed just for them. We think they look fantastic and hope they bring them some luck on the playing field too!

“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 Old Newtonians. We wish them the very best for the future.”
