Our World Cup giveaway was almost as fiercely contested as the competition itself, giving the judges a tough task to decide who should win the £1,000 worth of kit on offer. “But in the end, our decision was unanimous,” says Hudson Contract Chairman David Jackson. “And the prize is going to Kingfisher FC.”
Kingfisher FC was nominated by our client RM Contractors, of Redditch, whose Accounts Manager Katie Edwards explained in her entry: “We’re a fairly new club, set up by myself and my boyfriend Liam last year. We felt girls weren’t getting enough attention at other clubs where we’d been involved, because all the focus was on the boys, so we decided to create the only girls-only club in Redditch.
“Since then, we have worked tirelessly once the day job is over to help build the club. Our aim is to develop girls football and give everyone the best possible experience in a safe environment, having fun, developing their skills and making lifelong friends. One year on, and we now have a development centre for girls aged 5 – 11, and U10, U11, and U15 teams, plus a ladies adult team. The under tens debut in September, and the prize means they will all have new kit to get them started! We are delighted to have won.”
David Jackson adds: “The standard was so high we decided to add three extra prizes for runners ups, and these will be announced in the August edition of eNews.”
