We’ve always believed in backing budding talent . . . so we’re both delighted and proud to give our support to the Sharks. These enthusiastic youngsters are mad about football, and now that we’re sponsoring them they’ll be turning out on match days in a brand new kit.
The Sharks are the under-10s playing for Adlington Junior Football Club, which is based only a few kicks away from our own headquarters here in Lancashire. There’s a great team spirit that runs all the way through the club, which welcomes boys and girls from all around our area to come and play. Currently, the club has over 250 children involved from under-7s right through to open age, so there’s lots of outdoor action for football fans of all ages.
It’s great fun but under expert supervision, as Adlington JFC is an FA Charter Standard Club with full FA Affiliation. Each team has two coaches qualified to at least FA Level 1 coaching, and they are first aid trained and safeguard trained. This means the club provides a safe environment, along with expert guidance to bring out their skills and encourage them to be their best.
With plenty of fresh air and healthy exercise, sport like this is a great way to provide some ‘green time’ as an outdoor alternative to screen time. So follow their progress at facebook.com/groups/adlingtonjfc, or on their website at clubwebsite.co.uk/adlingtonjfc.
Or better still, come along and cheer them on in their home fixtures at the King George Playing Fields on Chorley Road in Adlington. Who knows, maybe you’ll spot some World Cup stars of the future.
