Thank You to Councillor Steve O'Connell
The club would like to thank Croydon Councillor Steve O’Connell for his generous support that has allowed us to buy new equipment and goal nets for our youth section.
This season the club is home to 24 youth teams, from U7s to U18s. Our WFC Foundation runs a Saturday morning soccer school and works with numerous Croydon primary schools, giving youngsters the opportunity to play football and enjoy the ‘beautiful game’.
Making a donation from his Kenley Ward budget Councillor O’Connell said how pleased he was to be using the money to help the club’s excellent work in encouraging young people to exercise and play football, whatever their ability or background.
“There will be many youngsters in my ward who are members of Whyteleafe or benefit from the club’s superb outreach programme in the Croydon area,” said Councillor O’Connell, a London Assembly Member for Croydon & Sutton.
“It’s always a privilege to visit the club and I would like to wish all the teams every success for the rest of this season. Hopefully the new balls and training equipment will help and inspire them to be the best they can be.”
