Yatton FC junior sides are looking great on the pitch thanks to a donation from the builders of a new residential development in the village.

The West of England housing association and housebuilder Curo have donated £3,750 to the club as part of their commitment to working together with local communities and supporting residents in areas where they are building new homes.

In total, 126 children with ages ranging from under-9s to under-14s have benefitted from brand-new Nike football kits, including shirts, socks and shorts.

And Curo’s sponsorship has also enabled the club management to purchase folding bench shelters to keep the junior footballers dry and comfortable during matches at home and away.

Curo are building 154 new homes for sale and rent at Eaton Park in Yatton, with the first few properties ready to receive their new residents in May 2021. Sales Manager Jodie Winter said: “It’s really important to us at Curo to support the communities we work in.

"As a developer and a housing association, we remain a part of the community long after we have built and sold the last property, as we continue to manage the affordable homes on site.
