13/12/17 - Biffa Donation

Thanks to a kind donation from Biffa Leicester the Leicester City Schools Representative Sides at under 13s and funders 14s now have a fantastic new playing kit

The growth of schools football in Leicester as dramatically increased over the last few years thanks to a small number of dedicated volunteers who make up the committee of the Leicester City Schools Football Association.

A spokesman for the association said: “Over the last four years we have created an explosion in school based football participation across the city”.

Every primary school in Leicester is now affiliated to the league with over 1,000 young people enjoying regular football opportunities for both girls and boys at New College Learning and Sports Village, Judgemeadow Community College and Aylestone Leisure Centre.

The league starts every September and goes through to a grand finale at the King Power stadium in May where the top teams from each of the venues compete to be named Primary School Champions for that season.

Talented youngsters can now go on to represent Leicester in English Schools FA competitions at a variety of age groups.

However, the association says that the good will of voluntary coaches and the ambition to have six representative sides from under 11s to under 16s, means funds are needed.

Biffa Leicester are proud to announce that we are a major sponsor for the Leicester City Schools Football Association.

We are thrilled to be involved in the development of children’s football throughout Leicester City schools by helping to provide football strips for teams and coaches, as well as supporting events and competitions to make every experience as enjoyable as possible for everyone involved.

“Biffa Leicester are proud to be associated with the Leicester City Schools Football Association.  Our sponsorship will provide much needed funding for strips and further strengthens the community ties between our business operations and the communities we serve.” – Adrian Smith, General Manager, Biffa Leicester Ltd.

The Leicester City Schools representative sides are currently based at New College Leicester which kindly gives up its facilities for free.

Wayne Allsopp, business development manager at New College Leicester and a committee member of the association, said: “What we have created is probably one of the best grass roots football development programmes in the country. Representing your school and then going on to represent your district creates lifelong memories and lifelong friends for any young person.

“We’re extremely keen to make sure that the experience of representing Leicester is a positive one and that our youngsters and volunteer coaches look the part when travelling the country. We’re not looking for ongoing handouts, but start-up cost for kit and playing equipment.

“We are extremely grateful for the kind donation that Biffa Leicester have provided and if any other businesses would be interested in sponsoring any of the other age groups we would love to hear from you. Our plea is for £1,000 to sponsor a district representative side and in return for this we will display sponsors details on the kit and all our promotional material including our new website and twitter account.”
