Cheshire-based Gleave Homes has announced a three-year sponsorship deal of Alderley Edge Hockey Club’s junior section.
The high-end home builder’s support enables the club to purchase additional coaching equipment and clothing for coaches.
The club currently boasts approximately 300 Junior players between the ages of 5-13 and is proud to offer opportunities for both those who just want to play for fun and those who have aspirations to play at National level.
Christopher and Emma Gleave commented: “We are proud to be sponsoring AEHC’s thriving Junior section.
“Our motivation is to give kids from all backgrounds the pride of playing and enjoying hockey.
“Seeing them build their confidence, working as a team and developing life-long friendships is very important.”
Testament to the junior section’s coaching and development programme, both the Badgers’ and Beavers’ A and B teams ran out winners against Bowdon and Oxton respectively in friendly fixtures on Saturday, while two U11 Girls’ teams posed excellent wins in a Greater Manchester tournament at a bitterly cold Armitage Centre on Sunday.
Hopefully acting as inspiration for the younger players, Edge’s 14 league teams also netted a total of 42 goals during Saturday’s fixtures.
