Ev­ery lit­tle helps with club move

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

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.”
