Ribble Wanderers score kit sponsorship from Lovell Homes

Ribble Wanderers U13s team will be sporting new kits next season thanks to a donation from Lovell Homes.

The house builder, which is currently onsite with two developments in the local area, Oaktree Grange in Clayton-le-Woods and Shawbrook Manor in Leyland, selected the Leyland-based junior football team following a call-out to support grassroots junior sports clubs in the area. The sponsorship of Ribble Wanderers U13’s new kit follows a recent donation to local swimming club, Leyland Barracudas.

Recently promoted to the Central Lancs Premier League and managed by ex Manchester United and England Schoolboy International Rob Trees, the U13 team will be running out on the pitch in Lovell Homes branded shirts for the 2019-2020 season.

Simon Corbett, field sales manager at Lovell Homes North West said: “We received a fantastic response to our call-out to help local junior sports clubs, however, we were keen to help the U13s celebrate their promotion and move to playing 11 x 11 by providing them with a set of new kits.

“Creating a lasting legacy for the local communities we work within is hugely important to Lovell Homes and we look forward to supporting Ribble Wanderers and other local groups and organisations in the coming months.”

Mike Oliver from Ribble Wanderers said: “We were delighted to receive this kind donation from Lovell Homes. As a grass roots football team, budgets are tight and contributions like this help us immensely in providing the teams with the right equipment to keep playing a game they all love so much. In addition, as a club we raise money for local charities having recently raised over £1500 for St. Catherine’s Hospice. Donations like this enable us to keep running the club and supporting our local community.”
