Wakefield Jets JFC celebrates homebuilder donation
The £500 deal will help the club purchase brand-new kit for its U10s Tornadoes team to be worn for the next two seasons.
Steven Overton, club secretary of Wakefield Jets JFC, comments: “The team is an incredibly hard-working group of boys and we’re delighted that we can reward their efforts with brand-new playing kit.
Playing home and away around the Wakefield and Leeds area they will represent both their club and Taylor Wimpey with pride.”
Wakefield Jets JFC was formed in 2002 and has since played an important role in junior sporting activities in the Wakefield area. It is an FA Charter Development Standard Club affiliated to the West Riding County FA and competing in the Garforth Junior Football League, as well as appropriate County Cup competitions.
The primary function of the club is to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for children to learn and play football. Children are encouraged to be actively involved in training sessions and to contribute as much as possible to club activities.
Anne Bagshaw, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, comments: “Sports clubs such as Wakefield Jets JFC provide a fantastic outlet for children to develop social and teamwork skills while getting fit and healthy.
“We are delighted to be able to work with the club to provide new playing kit for its U10s team and I know that they will do us very proud on the pitch.”
Wakefield Jets JFC train near the homebuilder’s Pipers Green development, which offers buyers a range of two- to five-bedroom homes in the sought-after village of Durkar.
Steven concludes: “We would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for its generosity and look forward to working with the homebuilder again soon.”
