LOCAL Community Football Club, Mitch FC, based in Skelmersdale, have received new rain jackets for their U8s team from Rosewood Trucking.
The club, which has grown from one team to seven teams since 2012, are delighted by the generosity from the local business with their support to local youth football.
Chris Sowerby, Head Coach of Mitch FC said: “We are delighted that Rosewood Trucking have sponsored the Under-8s team for rain jackets and all the boys and girls are extremely proud to wear the club badge and Rosewood Trucking's name.
“The joy on all the players’ faces was truly amazing when the boys and girls received their jackets and parents have commented how some of the players have not wanted to take them off since and even wanting to sleep in the Club wear!”
The club is continuing to grow and the help and support from local businesses such as Rosewood Trucking allows the club to continue their positive work with the young people of Skelmersdale.
Club Chairman, Ian Gregson commented: “I would like to thank Rosewood Trucking for the support and generosity on behalf of everyone at the club in particular the players, parents and staff of the U8's team.”
As the Club moves forward it is also with regret that the Club secretary has had to stand down from the position after many years of hard work and loyal support to concentrate on other commitments.
Chris Sowerby speaking of former Secretary Ellie Bebb said: “It’s been a great privilege to grow the club with Ellie who has been one of Mitch FC’s (and Brooky Boys, the club’s former name) biggest supporters, I would like to personally thank her for all her hard work and support over the years and wish her all the best for the future.”
As the club moves into 2014 the child centred club is looking for a new club secretary as well as new managers and coaches as they look to expand and establish new teams in 2014.
