Taylor Wimpey help fund new girls’ teams – Durham Federation FC

A HOUSEBUILDER has donated £500 to a school football club.

Developer Taylor Wimpey gave the money to Durham Federation FC, based in Ushaw Moor, to help fund new girls’ teams.

The club already has ten teams and hopes to establish girls’ teams at under 10, under 12 and under 14 level.

Matt Stevenson, the club secretary, said: “We are extremely grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s generous support, which has given us a huge boost and enabled us to offer girls in the local area the opportunity to play football.

“In a short space of time, we have already seen an influx of girls interested in joining the club and we’re looking forward to playing competitive matches in the near future.”

Taylor Wimpey has been building 167 new homes in Ushaw Moor, on land north of Ladysmith Terrace – less than a mile from the Durham Federation’s campus at Durham Community Business College.

The new estate, known as Middlewood Moor, will be unveiled on Saturday (May 2).

Karl Morton, the firm’s North East sales and marketing director, said: “With our new development opening just down the road from the club, it’s extremely important to us to support local projects where we can.

“We’re thrilled to be able to help Durham Federation offer football for girls for the very first time and we wish the new players the best of luck.”
