A junior football team in Undy will be donning new kit after receiving support from housebuilder Bellway.
Bellway – which is building 144 new homes at Greystone Meadows, off Parkhurst Drive in the village – has donated £250 towards new kit for the Under-16s at Undy Athletic Football Club, which will be worn during the team’s training sessions. The team play in the Monmouthshire Junior League.
The club – which is based at The Causeway – was founded in 1947 and now has young players aged from Under-4s to Under-16s, as well as an Under-18s, three senior teams, a girls’ section and a ladies’ team.
Under-16s coach Ian James says Bellway’s support towards training kits has been greatly appreciated.
He said: “We are extremely grateful for Bellway’s support. As a club we rely heavily on sponsorship to be able to provide the team with training clothes and equipment. As we live in a small village securing donations can sometimes be difficult though.
“We will be using the money from Bellway towards buying new rain jackets for the team to use all year round.”
Sales Manager for Bellway Wales, Dan Shone, said: “As part of our commitment to the areas in which we build our new homes, Bellway continues to support local community groups in whichever ways we can.
“Undy Athletic Football Club is a wonderful club which is continuing to thrive and makes up a great part of the village community. We hope that the Under-16s enjoy training in their new kit.”
Bellway is contributing more than £1.3 million to the local community as part of the planning agreement with Monmouthshire Council for Greystone Meadows.
There is currently a range of three and four-bedroom homes available to reserve at the development. For more information, visit bellway.co.uk or call the sales team on 01633 730 963.
