Kids football team kick-off with new Community kit

7th October 2019

“We’re pleased to help bring communities together…”

Community has renewed its sponsorship of one of Sedgley & Gornal United’s youth teams. Having sponsored the under 7s last season, Community is following the players by sponsoring the under 8s team for 2019/20. The kids football team is one of many community sports clubs which the union supports each year through its commitment to local causes close to the hearts of Community members.

Gavin Miller, Midlands Regional Secretary for Community, said:

“Community is delighted to support Sedgley & Gornal United FC for a second year running. We have so many members involved in good local groups like this and we are pleased to help out where we can to bring local communities together. We are proud to have our name on the kit once more and hopefully the team will go from strength to strength.”

Community is proud to sponsor the Under 8s at Sedgley and Gornal FC.

Sedgley and Gornal United is a newly formed club arising from the merger of two local football clubs, Gornal Colts and Ladies and Sedgley Scorpions. Its first full season was 2018/19.

Each year, Community makes dozens of small donations to different local causes. Over the years the union has backed a diverse range of applications including supporting members to participate in fundraising marathons, helping community centres raise funds for refurbishment and providing sponsorship for kids football or other sports clubs such as Sedgley and Gornal United.
