Meadford Sporting recently received a kit sponsorship from Hollywood Bets. Hollywood Bets decided to sponsor the Under 15 team who were league champions in their division and FA Cup finalists.
The club chairman Pravesh Gareeb, thanked the company for their support and for recognising the achievements of the boys. “They worked hard during the entire season and this kind of recognition was welcome.” He went on to say that this year, the club plans to add three more junior divisions to its development ranks. “We are well on the way preparing teams in the U7, 9 and 11 divisions,’’ Gareeb said.
He said that this will then take their junior teams to six teams and last year’s Under 17 will move up to either the Under 19 stream or play in the division three. “This is the main development team who are basically moving from boys to men. Junior to senior football. We urge other businesses to follow the same suit.
“We all wish the best for our kids. We all want them to achieve the best in life. But, the with all the current hazards out there we are seeing more and more of them turning to drugs. Sport is a great medium of keeping them off the street,’’ said Gareeb. The club wishes to urge parents to encourage their children to participate in sports be it cricket, volleyball or anything else as it keeps them happy. “This is the reason we go all out to ensure that this team is given everything they require and all they have to do is participate in training as well as give a good account of themselves when playing competitively,’’ added Gareeb.
The club wishes to express their gratitude to Hollywood Bets and others who have stood by the club throughout the years and continue to do so. “Their contributions are highly valued,”said Gareeb.
