A local junior football team are onto a winner thanks to Manning Stainton.
The Beeston branch of the area’s leading estate agent has provided Middleton Park FC Under 8’s with an impressive new green and black playing strip as part of its on-going Community Support Programme.
The team currently play in the Garforth Junior League and have seen the number of registered players rise significantly over the last 12 months.
Team Manager Joe Muddiman said: ‘Last year we only had four players signed up and now we have as many as 14 boys regularly turning up for our weekly training sessions which is fantastic.
‘First and foremost it is about making sure they have fun in a safe environment, as well as helping them appreciate the many health and social benefits of participating in recreational sport.
‘Like all amateur clubs money is extremely tight and we are responsible for our own fundraising which is why we are so grateful to Manning Stainton for their generous sponsorship.’
Julie Hedley, Branch Coordinator at Manning Stainton on Beeston Road, added: ‘Clubs like Middleton Park FC play such an important role within the local community which is why we had absolutely no hesitation in offering our support.
‘It was also lovely to meet up with the boys and see how excited they were with the new kit. Hopefully this will spur them onto even greater things this season and we will certainly be keeping an eye on their progress. Who knows, we could be looking at the next crop of Leeds United players!’
Manning Stainton has donated in excess of £50,000 to over 50 clubs, groups, schools and other worthwhile organisations through its Community Support Programme over the last 12 months.
The company’s Beeston branch is open seven days a week and the team is ready to take customer calls from 8am-8pm every day. It is one of 19 Residential Sales and Lettings branches across West and North Yorkshire helping people move.
