A junior girls’ team at Peel AFC has a brand new football kit thanks to The International Stock Exchange (TISE).
TISE has funded the purchase and printing of a new strip for Peel’s Under-12 Girls.
Carolyn Gelling, Head of the Isle of Man Office at The International Stock Exchange Group (TISEG), said: “We are delighted to support Peel Junior Football Club, which is run entirely by volunteers and providing an incredibly friendly and supportive community for youngsters to get involved with the game.
“Children in the island are fortunate to have access to so many sporting opportunities and youth football in particular can provide a number of mental and physical benefits to a child’s overall development. The camaraderie and teamwork at Peel Juniors is clear to see. We wish the girls’ teams well for their current season and look forward to watching their progress.”
Peel Juniors has around 250 youngsters, of which around 50 make up the girls’ section.
Elaine Cain, Honorary Treasurer at Peel Juniors, said: “Peel Juniors is growing in numbers each year and the girls’ section is part of that growth. There are around 50 girls aged between 6 and 15 years old who train weekly at the Tommy Clucas Sportshall, which a fantastic facility.
“We are delighted and very grateful to TISE for the sponsorship of our Under-12 Girls’ team. We really appreciate the support, which not only enables us to manage our overheads while also providing the girls with a brand new kit but it demonstrates the backing they have from those beyond football club.”
