STEWART Milne Homes has continued its commitment to supporting girls’ football in Scotland by becoming the lead sponsor of Bishopton Football Club’s under 10s and 12s squads.
Brand new playing and training kits have been provided to the club, with an estimated value of over £2,000, to support 35 young girls throughout the 23/24 season.
The sponsorship follows a long-standing commitment from the housebuilder to support young women to access the sport. In 2022, a similar partnership was made with Grampian Girls FC with Stewart Milne Homes becoming the club’s official kit sponsor.
Stewart Milne Homes additionally sponsored Holly Daniel, the current forward in the Scotland Under-16 squad, allowing her to train with other young female players after being selected for the Scottish Schools’ Football Association’s U15 international team in 2022.
Isobel Warnock, head of sales Scotland at Stewart Milne Homes, said, “This sponsorship is part of our commitment to build people shaped places, supporting the communities in and around our Dargavel Village development in Bishopton. Sport plays such an important role in building strong, confident, and healthy young adults and we are proud to support equal opportunities for girls to enjoy sport. Best of luck to both squads in the upcoming season. Everyone at Dargavel Village is proud to support you!”
Colin Bell, of Bishopton FC, added, “Thank you so much to Stewart Milne Homes for supporting the Under-12 and Under-10s girls teams. It is so important to us that women and girls have equal opportunities to not only access to sport, but to thrive in it.”
