Larkfleet gives football’s next generation a helping hand
We enjoy football at Larkfleet Homes, so we are delighted to help youngsters in nearby Baston enjoy the ‘Beautiful Game’.
We are helping talented local youngsters to stay dry and look cool by sponsoring waterproof jackets worn by Baston Junior Football Club’s under-14s squad.
The new Joma Bench Rain Jackets, featuring the club badge and players’ initials on the front, with the Larkfleet logo on the back, are worn by the U14s to keep them warm and dry on the training pitch and on match days.
Baston Junior FC was established in summer 2015 and they have been successful in their first couple of seasons. The current U14s squad played its first season in the U12 Division 1 of the Peterborough Junior Alliance League.
They won the League Cup and finished second in the league. They also reached the final of the Lincolnshire U12 County Cup, which was held at Stamford’s ground.
As U13s in the 2016/2017 season the team won the coveted PFA Cup played at the ABAX Stadium, home of Peterborough United, and just missed out on winning the league.
The ambitious team is playing up a year for the current season 2017/18. Despite being an U14s squad, Baston Juniors are currently playing in the Peterborough Youth League U15 Division 2.
Our joint managing director Helen Hick said: “Larkfleet is committed to supporting the local community and it’s a pleasure to sponsor the Baston Juniors FC rain jackets.
“We consider ourselves to be a winning team here at Larkfleet and it is great to be associated with such a successful local football team. Our logo will be on display when the players are out and about in the region representing their team.”
Who knows, some of these lads could be playing in the FA Cup in the future.
