Olney Town Girls’ Football Club scores sponsorship with David Wilson Homes

The young footballers are sporting their new jackets for training sessions and in the build-up to matches after the local homebuilder became an official sponsor for the season.

David Wilson Homes, which is building new properties at its developments Brooklands and Eagles’ Rest close by, has contributed to the youth team for their waterproof sportswear.

Paul Griffiths, Club Manager at Olney Town Colts U10 Belles FC, said: “It’s been many years since Olney had a girls’ football team and with women’s football becoming so popular thanks to the Lionesses and televised matches, local girls finally have the chance to play football with their peers.

“The club is growing weekly and cold weather is usually the test for real commitment. Thanks to Davis Wilson Homes’ kind and generous donation, the girls are warm, dry and enjoying their football.”

The newly formed team participates in the Bucks Girls Football League and plays its home matches at the Olney Town FC recreation ground.

Providing support to the team, the club has also enrolled a female coach as a positive role model for the girls’ sports development.

With a number of growing families moving into the homebuilder’s Brooklands and Eagles’ Rest developments, the local football team could be welcoming many new residents and the properties may soon be accommodating the stars of the future.

Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “We’re delighted to have sponsored Olney Town Colts U10 Belles Girls team and we wish them the very best of luck for the season.

“As a leading housebuilder, it’s important to us to support local groups and organisations within the communities we build. Clubs such as this football team unite residents, boosting morale within the neighbourhood and creating an identity for the young people involved.”

David Wilson Homes currently has a selection of three, four and five bedroom properties available to reserve at Brooklands in Milton Keynes with prices starting from £357,495.

The leader homebuilder also has a range of two, three and four bedroom properties available at Eagles’ Rest with prices starting from £234,995.
