First Strip for CLP Football Team

Posted: November 10, 2009

David Brownlie, Sidey’s Commercial Sales Manager presents  the Ancho CLP team with their very first kit!

Ancho Housing Association’s CLP (Community Link Project) football team were today kitted out with their very first football strips, courtesy of Perth based company Sidey Ltd.

The team was formed by boys that attend the CLP Friday night drop in club, which was created after the group obtained funding from BBC Children in Need last year.

Robin Ballantyne, Project Coordinator of CLP said: “Predominately the drop in was set up to provide a safe and relaxing place for local young people to meet on a Friday night and as a diversion from traditional Friday night activities i.e. under age drinking, anti social behaviour, etc.

The group is now well established and everything we provide is driven by the young people themselves. Things like day trips out during holiday periods to adventure weekend breaks were all based on requests from this group. So another request was to form a football team. While slightly daunting for the youth workers and staff to plan how to go about it, we are so impressed by the boys enthusiasm and desire to play teams in other areas of Ayrshire. 

“We have many talented players who take it very seriously, so to have Sidey donate a full set of strips means the boys can now embrace and take ownership of the CLP team even more. The team is delighted and they look so professional in their kits.”
