BACKING FOR WILDCATS

January 8th, 2020.


A football centre which gives young girls the opportunity to play in Seaford has been boosted by support from a local business.


The Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre has players aged between 5-12 years old and were given a head start this week (January 4th) by Jerry Lyons from the Estate Agent Content Club.

The Seaford based company bought branded beanie hats for the girls to keep warm while they learn the beautiful game.

The Wildcats Centre is part of a national Football Association (FA) initiative to encourage more girls to play football.

The centre is the only one between Brighton and Eastbourne and is run by Premier United, a local FA chartered standard community club.

Michelle Treacy, who is one of the qualified coaches, said: “We’re trying to introduce as many young girls as possible to football. It’s a brilliant sport and the rise in the number of girls taking it up is encouraging. It keeps them active, teaches them the importance of teamwork, builds new friendships and is a lot of fun.

“We’re very grateful to Jerry and his company for generously providing the hats which have made the girls feel even more like a team and will keep them warm while they go through their paces.”

Jerry Lyons said: “A key part of my business is called the Karma Club where we give back to good community causes every month. I’ve seen the effort the coaches put into the weekly sessions with the girls and am so impressed with the enthusiasm the players show.

“We’re proud to have been able to support them."
