Backing young local footballers

Posted onPosted on 2nd Nov

A newly-launched under-7s football team in Warsop is celebrating after receiving sponsorship from homecare business Walfinch Mansfield.

The team, based at the John Fretwell Sporting Complex, Sookholme, was set up in the spring by Mark Bakalarczyk and his partner, Toni Stewart, with support from coaches Aaron Ford and AJ Timmons.

Having been made aware of the team by friend and coach Aaron, Tiffany Meachim, managing director of Walfinch Mansfield, was keen to support the squad for its first season.

“The passion behind the coaches and parents in creating this new team to provide younger children with somewhere else where they can play is clear,” she said.

“They’ve put a lot of time and energy into creating a family-friendly team environment, and I was delighted to pledge sponsorship to help.”

Walfinch Mansfield, which has a team of 36 carers, sponsored team kit, waterproof training clothes, boot bags, and additional equipment such as extra footballs and training cones.

Aaron: “It’s taken a great deal of pressure off parents who, other than providing the football boots, don’t have to worry about buying any kit.”
