Peak Valley Kicks Off the Season

Hattersley FC’s Under 8s team kick off for the first time this season.
Hattersley FC’s new Under 8s team football season has kicked off to a great start with the help of sponsorship from Peak Valley Housing Association. The sponsorship has resulted in brand new kits for the team to begin their first ever season at the Club.
Chairman of Hattersley FC Neil Lonergan said: “We were thrilled when Peak Valley agreed to sponsor the kits, and the children feel very proud wearing them.”
The Club which is ten years old has has nine teams in total and has sponsorship for six of them but is looking for sponsors for its under 12s, under 17s and the veteran team - the over 35s!
With 170 children paying football, the Club relies on local residents to volunteer their time.
“We are always looking for volunteers to help out with coaching,” said Neil. “Our
coaches are all Level 1 qualified and trained in first aid and child protection as well as being CRB checked.
“We have excellent facilities and fully-qualified football coaches, we compete regularly, and pride ourselves on our reputation and delivering safe and effective football sessions.”
In 2004, the Club gained the Charted Standard Award, which sets standards of coaching, administration and child protection for Clubs working with young people.
Frank Mullin from Peak Valley said: “Peak Valley is delighted to provide this sponsorship for Hattersley FC which is an integral part of the community in Hattersley. Many of the children live in Peak Valley homes and so we were keen to do our bit to support our residents. Hopefully their Peak Valley kits will provide them with a lot of luck this season.”
