At Capstone Foster Care we are always keen to support young teams to thrive and succeed. Our fostering team at Capstone North currently sponsor the under 10s team at Beacon Rangers Junior Football Club. The team play in the Huddersfield Junior Football League, and the club is based in Halifax.
The Under 10s team are a newly formed team, one of five teams at Beacon Rangers in 2016/2017. The club are going from strength to strength and for the 2017/2018 season have a total of 9 teams, plus a mini-kickers session for youngsters too young to play matches.
Nigel Freeman, Coach and Chairman of Beacon Rangers Junior Football Club, said:
“Capstone’s kind sponsorship enabled each player in the U10s team to have a brand new kit, bearing the Capstone logo, which the children wore with pride. Capstone would also have been pleased to see the manner in which the team played, embracing Beacon’s values of teamwork, sportsmanship and positive encouragement. The team have signed three more players (two girls and a boy) in preparation for the 2017/2018 season in the Huddersfield Junior Football League, which makes a current squad of ten players.”
Supervising Social Worker from Capstone, Lauren, went along to a presentation evening for the Under 10s team at Beacon Rangers to unveil the new kit. This is the second year Capstone have been sponsoring the Under 10s team .
Lauren said: “It was a pleasure to go along to the recent presentation evening, where the team presented me with a signed shirt from them all. We believe in doing our best to support young people and enabling the team to have a nice football kit is important to us. I had a great time meeting the coaches, parents and the players and it’s wonderful to see a local football club having a positive effect on the confidence and skill of young people in Halifax.”
The signed shirt will take pride of place in the local Capstone office at Capstone:
