Co-op kits out Clanfield FC youth team.

A community-based local youth football team has been proudly sporting more than just their skills this season as they have also been showing off a brand new kit.

Clanfield Football Club's Under 7s have started their first season playing non-competitive organised football dressed in their brand new blue and white outfits donated by Southern Co-op.
The club is celebrating its 35th year of providing football in the local community.
It is run entirely by volunteers and has grown to more than 15 youth teams across ages from Under 7s to Under 18s, as well as having two adult teams.
Tony Walker, one of the coaches for Clanfield Football Club's Under 7s, said: "As a club we try and keep our costs as low as possible so that playing football can be accessible for all.
"The Under 7s are the youngest group starting out so needed home and away kits for both teams, the Southern Co-op donation has meant that we have enough shirts for the both teams on away games.
"For me, it means the children can go out onto the pitch, feeling smart and proud of the club they play for, ready to enjoy themselves and give their best."
Southern Co-op's Clanfield store supported the youth football club as part of its community engagement programme ‘Love Your Neighbourhood'.
This initiative addresses four key social themes for promoting: ‘Greener', ‘Healthier', ‘Safer', and ‘More Inclusive' neighbourhoods.
As an FA Charter Standard Community Club, Clanfield FC aims to provide a safe, enjoyable, learning environment for all children and adults.
Tom King, Duty Manager at Southern Co-op's Clanfield store, said: "It is great to see the funding being used for kit, equipment and generally to help fund the team to give opportunities for all kids to play organised football.
"We supported them because they are very local and we feel strongly in giving young kids the opportunity to participate in organised football and other sports events. It also encourages healthy living through exercise."
