Chelmsford City Youth FC tackle sponsorship with Persimmon

Chelmsford City under 8s youth football squad have scored a sponsorship from Persimmon Homes Essex and have netted a brand new training kit.

The local house builder has kitted out the team of youngsters with a matching strip including socks, shorts, shirts and tracksuits.

Matt Oates, team manager of the under 8s, said: “As a new team this season we are grateful for Persimmon Homes’ support and generous donation of a new training kit.

“Chelmsford City is a high profile club so it is great for the young players to feel important when on the pitch, and the matching kit has helped the team come together.

“The boys feel valued and the new strip has prompted a winning streak which we hope will only get better and better.”

Norman Sharpe, sales and marketing director at Persimmon Homes Essex, said: “It has always been important for us to support the community in which our developments are located.

“With a development on Patching Hall Lane coming soon to Chelmsford we are more than happy to offer our support to the budding young players.”

The Patching Hall Lane development will feature a range of two, three and four bedroom houses located in Broomfield. Prospective house hunters can benefit from a selection of incentives such as FirstBuy, NewBuy and the Persimmon Homes Part Exchange scheme.
