The under-9s have received a £250 award from UK Power Networks towards the cost of new rain jackets to keep the boys warm and dry during the winter.

The squad was nominated for a Team Sport Award by parent, Daniel Cotter, a field engineer for the electricity firm, which keeps electricity supplies flowing across the South East, London and East of England. His son Rupert has played for the squad for two years.

Daniel said: “It’s brilliant to receive the support from UK Power Networks. The boys love to have new kit and they deserve the support. They were desperate to play football again following lockdown and it’s good for them to play a sport which builds teamwork.

“The guy that runs the club does it all for free, giving his free time, so it’s good to be able to give something back to the club and show our appreciation.”

The team train and play home matches at Joliffe Playing Ground, in Fox Lane, Caterham, and the boys play in the Epsom and Ewell Youth Football League.

The Team Sport Award scheme is run by UK Power Networks to encourage staff to volunteer in the community and is aimed at promoting healthy living, teamwork and developing sports opportunities. Last year, more than 60 local sports teams connected to UK Power Networks’ staff benefitted from a share in £15,500.
