New sponsor for Football Club celebrating Centenary

23 January 2019

The UK’s leading homebuilder for first time buyers, Keepmoat Homes, has announced its sponsorship of a grassroots football club.

Gedling Miners Welfare FC which was founded 100 years ago has received support from the new home builder as part of its commitment to support local community projects around the former Gedling Colliery site which it is currently redeveloping.

It is hoped the funding and support of Keepmoat Homes - which includes new kits and signage, will help the club, which is a founding member of the East Midlands Counties League, to engage further with the local community and attract more people to the club throughout the season.

Vic Hulme, Chairman of Gedling Miners Welfare Football Club said: “Not only is this a huge benefit to us as a club but also the local community. Everyone is really looking forward to working in partnership with Keepmoat Homes during the season.”

Shaun Fielding, Regional Managing Director at Keepmoat Homes said: “We’re delighted to be able to partner such a historic grassroots football club which over the course of the last 100 year has won not only trophies but has played a pivotal role in the community.”

To commemorate the new sponsorship package Keepmoat Homes was presented with a framed shirt for its Show Home at its Chase Farm development by the club on 23rd January 2019.
