Thatcham Harriers Under-13s have received a portion of a £1,000 donation toward new training kits from housebuilders Forterra.

To coincide with the 2024 European Championships in Germany, Forterra has donated £1,000 across five different clubs to aid their growth and development.

Rossington Main Football Club, Ollerton Town Football Club, Ibstock United Junior Football Club, Thatcham Harries Blue under 13’s and Tamworth Football Club have all benefited from the donation.

Robert Lyons, Coach of the Thatcham Harriers Blue Under-13’s said: “We can’t thank Forterra enough for the donation. It goes a long way to helping get the lads kitted out. As we look towards next season after the summer break it’s important they have the right gear especially in the winter months. It will be fantastic to see them looking smart and ready to score.”

Adam Smith, Commercial Director at Forterra said, “With the Euros underway it’s been fantastic to support an array of local football clubs. Football plays a huge role in many people's lives as a community-building sport where everyone rallies behind a unified team. It’s great to see young people engaged and excited about sports and thrive in a safe supportive environment. We look forward to seeing the clubs expand their outreach and provide quality training for their teams.”
