Every little helps with club move
WEST Lancashire’s biggest junior football club is being supported by Tesco Burscough Bridge as it prepares to move into its new ground.
Burscough Dynamo FC is an amateur club which has 22 teams starting at Under-6 and including two senior men’s teams and a ladies team.
The club previously used the playing fields at Priory High School in Burscough but is moving to the Thomas Galvin Sports Ground, Abbey Lane, for the new season.
Although it has received funding to help restore the pitches to a playable condition there is plenty of work to do on and off the field to get everything ready.
The support is part of Tesco Burscough Bridge’s commitment to helping local community groups and organisations.
Staff from the store in Liverpool Road North formed their own Tesco task force to help clean up the pavilion and assist with painting.
The store is also sponsoring a kit for the Under16s team and donating £300 of Tesco gift cards, which will be used to supply the pavilion with refreshments on match days for the coming year.
Mark Rogers, store manager at Tesco Burscough Bridge, said: “Whilst we are dedicated and focused on serving our customers and enhancing their shopping experience, we are also keen to engage with and support our local community.
“Burscough Dynamo FC is a major part of the local community and we are delighted to be able to help out in this way.”
Burscough Dynamo FC chairman Simon Kenyon said: “Everyone at the club is excited at the prospect of moving to our new ground, but we wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of the local community.
“The support we have received from Tesco has also been fantastic and we are very grateful to them for this.”
