Award-winning developer Millwood Designer Homes has proven to be a good sport, by sponsoring a brand new kit for Hastings Athletic Football Club’s Under 10s team for this football season.

Jim McSweeney, whose son is on the team, first approached Millwood Designer Homes about the sponsorship. He comments: “The team had grown out of their kit and their manager had been struggling to find a new sponsor. I have just bought a house from Millwood Designer Homes, and contacted them on the off chance they would be interested. I wasn’t expecting to hear anything for a while, but they came back to me straight away and said they would love to sponsor a new kit.

He continues: “They were really keen to get involved and I was amazed at how quick the process was; within a few hours we had a yes, and within a few days the design was ready. The kit is a much higher quality than the previous one, so the kids are thrilled. They all think they’re Messi!”

A true community team, the boys came together three years ago sharing a mutual love of football. Initially coached and managed by parents, the team is now led by manager Andrew Batsford and coaches Ricky and John. Having managed to secure a deal with Guestling Parish Council, Hastings Athletic FC has been able to take on the playing fields and pavilion and make them into a facility for teams across all age groups.

Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes comments: “We are delighted to sponsor a local team for this football season. We hope that our sponsorship will help enhance their performance as a team and we wish them every success in their upcoming games.”
