The Maidstone under-14s have won a £250 award from UK Power Networks for new training jackets.

The squad was nominated for the award by parent and volunteer, Emma Kemp, who works in the connections team at the electricity firm in Maidstone.

Emma said: “I was chuffed to win this award. It means that the boys can be kitted out in matching training tops, which gives them pride in their team, looks more professional, builds their self-esteem and will keep them warm during match training over the winter.

“Playing sport helps them with discipline, teamwork, social skills as well as positive physical and emotional health outcomes. We are keen to keep the boys playing football so we all pitch in and do our bit and we’re grateful for UK Power Networks’ support.”

The team train at Hollingbourne Recreation Ground and play in the league. Emma’s son, Joseph Stallard, is a striker whose highlight of the season was scoring a hat-trick in three minutes.

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. So far this year, more than 70 local sports teams connected to UK Power Networks’ staff have benefitted.
