Young players for a Garston Football Team will be proudly wearing new kits next season after a donation from the Premier League Charitable Fund.
Children in Reception to Year 3 attend tots football sessions every Saturday in conjunction with local youth football team Everett Rovers with the expectation that some of them will sign up for Everett Rovers next season.
On April 21, Watford FC Community Sports & Education Trust, who help run the sessions, presented Everett Rovers FC with a brand new set of football kits for next seasons under 7s teams.
The new kit was donated as part of the ‘Players Kit Scheme’ which aims to get young people active by supplying schools and clubs with free kits.
Richard Bulling, Football and Sport Development Officer for Watford CSE, said the day went extremely well.
He commented: “Working closely with Everett Rovers FC has really benefitted our tots football session by creating an exit route for players should they want to join a local grassroots football team.
The day itself went really well and we had lots of interest from parents committing for the next football season in 2018/2019. It’s looking like Everett Rovers FC will get at least two new teams for next season which demonstrates the success of the programme.”
