Shane Hewlett, Girls Football in the Community Officer, said, “We are very pleased that Verelogic has decided to invest in the programme again this season. The funding will help us to continue our work to promote this great sport and develop the girls programme.
“The girls currently participating in the programme have great potential and we look forward to building on last years’ successes. The funding helps us to give the girls the opportunity to continue to develop their skills within a structured and focused environment.
"We want to inspire more girls to play football and to have the chance of structured teaching under the guidance of high quality STFC qualified coaches. Newcomers would have the opportunity to participate in professional football coaching sessions and competitive matches. We would like to hear from individuals who would like to get involved.”
Verelogic Group CEO, Kevin Metcalfe said, “We are very pleased to sponsor the Girls Development Programme again this year. The Trust shows a real passion and enthusiasm for helping children and young people to achieve and grow through the sport. We are passionate about supporting and embracing this local community initiative.
"We look forward seeing the Swindon Town Football in the Community go from strength to strength and wish them every success in the season ahead.”
This year Verelogic Group is celebrating 25 years in IT industry. During that time they have built strong relationships with both local businesses and the community.
