Coventry City Girls FC celebrate second year of homebuilders sponsorship

COVENTRY City Girls FC has celebrated its partnership with Barratt Homes North Midlands following a second successful season.

The Warwickshire housebuilder sponsored the club’s Under-12s for the 2020/21 campaign and has continued to invest in the future stars of the women’s game with a contribution for their kits.

Melissa Harvey, manager and secretary of Coventry City Girls Under-12s FC, said: “The girls have really had a difficult time with the Covid-19 interruptions.

“After 10 games they were sitting seven points clear at the top of the league table, but the league was then void.

“This didn’t stop the team from working hard from home and keeping a football at their feet; practicing skills and challenges set by the management team.”

Mark Cotes, managing director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “Grassroots sports have been heavily affected during the pandemic and it’s important to support the clubs in our local communities.

“We’re very happy to have supported Coventry City Girls FC over a two-year period, as part of our efforts to help young children stay active whilst contributing to their future success in sports.”
