Albert Village Junior Football Club has scored a new sponsor in the form of award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes.
Located just ten minutes from St. Modwen Homes’ Manorfields development in Swadlincote, the housebuilder has supplied new match day jackets for all 20 ‘under six’ players and funds for further equipment across the other age groups, as well as pitch sponsorship for the new season.

Bev Hall, Sales and Marketing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “At St. Modwen Homes we’re committed to supporting community initiatives and bringing our homeowners together. Sports clubs such as Albert Village Football Club play a vital role in this, whilst teaching young people new skills and helping them develop friendships and confidence in a welcoming environment”.

“We’re very much looking forward to cheering the U6 teams; ‘Spitfires’ and ‘Vulcans’ on this year and hope to see some of our new homeowners become part of the club in the future.”
Andy Wileman, Spitfires Coach at Albert Village Junior Football Club, said: “As well as coaching the U6s, my son Eddie is also part of the team, so I understand from both sides the impact sponsorship can have and it’s great to see a local housebuilder get involved.

“The kits were presented to the teams at our presentation day, the kids were over the moon with their new jackets, I’m sure the partnership is going to be a huge success!”
Albert Village Junior Football Club was established in 2008 to give local boys and girls the opportunity to play regular football, with more than 180 children, from the age of three through to 13 at present, now playing each week.
