The kits are alright!

Leading developer funds soccer school's goal of brand-new uniform.

A Nottingham-based soccer school are scoring in style after a donation from a leading developer has helped fund brand-new uniforms and equipment for the club.

David Wilson Homes has donated £250 to Pelican Colts Soccer School, as a part of its Community Fund Scheme.

The club, which trains at Dave Eastwood Sports Ground in Nottingham, helps young children aged four to eight improve their football skills and grow an inner confidence which can be applied to other sports.

The donation was presented at the team’s training session on Saturday 6th April, with their football coach, Damion Beardsley present to accept the grant.

“We cannot express enough gratitude to David Wilson Homes for providing us with this generous donation which will further the development of our football club,” Damion Beardsley, Lead Coach at Pelican Colts, said.

“After we had a break in recently, we were left with a lack of equipment and sporting essentials for the children, but with this grant we are able to invest in new products and even the promotion of the club.

“We are excited to see where this donation will take us and for the children to progress even more in their sporting abilities.”

The school was nominated by a David Wilson Homes East Midlands employee, Craig Bates, whose son also plays for the club.

John Reddington said, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands:

“We are delighted to have been able to support the making of Pelican Colts’ brand new football kits with our Community Fund Scheme.”

“Whilst it’s always great to give back to our local area, it’s especially rewarding when we’re able to support clubs and organisations close to the people that work for us.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the Pelican Colts achieve all their sporting goals this year as well as hopefully shooting plenty!”

David Wilson Homes is currently building in Nottinghamshire at the following developments: Berry Hill in Mansfield and Romans’ Quarter in Bingham.
