In a heart-warming demonstration of community spirit and local investment, Chalkwell Coach Hire has stepped forward to sponsor the full kit and shirts for the ladies football team of Woodcombe FC. The magnanimous gesture underscores the company’s longstanding commitment to fostering local talent and supporting the region’s sports.
The official handover of the kit took place earlier this week, with Gavin, the manager of Woodcombe FC, meeting Roland, the MD of Chalkwell Coach Hire. The event was an uplifting occasion, where team members, including Lillie Jones, Chloe Dawson, Ellen Hackett, and the entire squad, got the chance to greet their sponsors.
The season has commenced on a challenging note for the Woodcombe ladies. Their spirit was tested in the last game where they took an early lead, only to face adversity in the form of injuries to their captain, Chloe Dawson, and winger, Niamh Davison. Despite the unforeseen circumstances and the game’s eventual 2-3 result, the team showcased their unwavering resilience and dedication to the sport.
Speaking about the sponsorship, Roland said, “We at Chalkwell Coach Hire believe in the power of community, and this is just one way we’re giving back. These young women represent the spirit, tenacity, and talent of Sittingbourne, and we’re proud to support them.”
Echoing the sentiment, Gavin expressed, “The challenges we face only make us stronger. With support from Chalkwell Coach Hire, we’re not just wearing a new kit; we’re wearing our pride and determination. We thank them for their faith in us.”
Woodcombe FC’s ladies team comprises of a talented lineup: Lillie Jones, Chloe Dawson, Ellen Hackett, Emily Harrold, Niamh Davison, Maddy Titshall, Alana Jeffrey, Chelsea Meaney, Tabitha C-W, Ella Taylor, Francesca Veal, Lois Wagstaff, Casey Roberts, Isabell Bullen, Rachel Cockell, Jemima Woolley, Stephanie Evans, Darcie Webster, Nicole Smigs, and Emily Arnold.
The community is urged to rally behind these incredible athletes, offering support in their upcoming matches and throughout the season.
