We’re pleased to announce that Delivered has become a Club Sponsor for our local football club, the very active Woodley Town. Established in the community since 1904, the club currently provides football from 5-year-old “mini-kickers” through the ages to adult football, and works with local schools supporting inter school events and providing coaching sessions.
The men’s first team compete in the Uhlsport Hellenic Football League Division One East at Step 6 of the FA’s National League System. This enabled the FA Vase, with the final played at Wembley, to be entered for the first time in 2014-15 and next season the club is looking forward to making its debut in the FA Cup.
Next season is also an exciting one as the club will amalgamate with local neighbours Woodley Hammers FC and Woodley United Ladies FC and play under the Woodley United FC banner. This will bring together around 1500 football ‘stakeholders’, including male and female players (of all ages in forty teams), coaches, managers, physios, club committee members, parents and supporters with the objective of offering everyone in the community the opportunity to play, develop and grow through football, regardless of race, gender, age or ability and in so doing provide “Community based football that is the envy of the footballing world”
The project has already captured plenty of interest. As well as articles in the local press, Club Chairman, Dave Pickup, was invited to speak about One Woodley on Radio Five Live’s ‘Football League’ programme in December. There has also been huge support from the FA, the local MP, Rob Wilson, and the Unitary and Town Councils.
Delivered are delighted to be supporting the Club in such an exciting time in its long history, and look forward to the next developments.
