A local football team in Hereford is set for success after receiving a match kit donation from Principality Building Society.
The kit, donated to Belmont Wanderer’s FC Ladies Team by the Society’s Hereford branch, has recently helped see the team through to third place in the Herefordshire Ladies Development league as well as the semi-finals in the County Cup.
Since its establishment in 2011, Belmont Wanderers FC have been committed to supporting the development of players in Hereford at grassroots levels, with junior and senior teams. The club has grown to provide opportunities for 300 players and 22 teams, with 50 local volunteers on hand.
Chris Tipping, Head of Development & Coach at Belmont Wanderers FC said:
“With the expanding teams we have at our club finding support to buy kits can be a tricky task, heightened even further due to the coronavirus pandemic. Principality stepped in at the perfect time as the ladies were on the cusp of actually buying their own kits, for them as a team it was welcome news! The team look amazing in the new kits. We hope to keep working with Principality in the future, who share our vision for supporting the local community.”
Sarah Caton, Hereford Branch Manager, Principality Building Society said:
‘’Our commitment to the community in Hereford goes beyond the relationships we build with our members and customers in branch. It’s fantastic to see the opportunities Belmont Wanderers FC are providing for all ages and abilities in the Hereford community, which is testament to how quickly the club is growing. We’re so proud to have supported Belmont Wanderer’s Ladies Team with the kit donation and wish them every success for the next season.’’
