Brenda Johnstone, Board Member of CHA presenting the cheque to Ardrossan Winton Rovers 2009’s along with Stuart Griffiths, Football Coach
On Tuesday 9th November 2021 Brenda Johnstone, Board Member of Cunninghame Housing Association presented a cheque for £1,000 to Ardrossan Winton Rovers 2009’s along with their Football Coach, Stuart Griffiths.
The Ardrossan Winton Rovers 2009’s is a development football club for local children born in 2009. The aim of the club is to encourage good fitness habits, healthy eating, and to promote their confidence, skills and teamworking attitude which will be beneficial later in life. Formed in 2018, the team has grown to 17 young players, along with 3 volunteer coaches and a volunteer qualified first aider. The young players enjoy twice weekly training sessions and compete in the North Ayrshire Soccer Association League with weekly games against other clubs.
Brenda Johnstone, Board Member of CHA commented, “I was delighted and honoured to present the cheque on behalf of Cunninghame Housing Association to Ardrossan Winton Rovers 2009’s. A very worthwhile local cause with their commitment and enthusiasm whilst encouraging and developing many life skills in the young players. Wishing them all the best for future games in the North Ayrshire Soccer Association League”.
The funds provided by Cunninghame Housing Association will enable the team of 2009 to purchase new away-game match strips and light rain jackets for training and match play. This allows all of the young people to be part of the team and takes away any financial burden on some families who may be at a disadvantage.
The funding for Ardrossan Winton Rovers 2009’s came from the Associations “Making Our Communities a Better Place Fund” which operates throughout the year (1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022) until the allocated funding is exhausted.
we greatly appreciate all the help we have received over the years from Cunninghame Housing Association and without this support we wouldn’t be developing as well as a local youth football team.
