Once a month the teams come together to play a series of matches at Vida on Tag Lane in Preston in the Lancashire FA Enrichment League.
Peter Robinson, Support Worker for VIP, coach and encouraging voice behind the team said, ‘This league provides an excellent opportunity for our VIP’s to mix with other disability teams and colleagues in an event they enjoy and love being part of. We love watching them grow and flourish every match.’
‘The guys are over the moon with their new kit, they absolutely love it! We can’t thank Scruffymonkey enough.’
Scruffymonkey have been supporting Caritas Care for over 4 years and when they heard the VIP Football Team were looking for someone to provide them with a kit, they were keen to help out.
Chris Dawes, Director at Scruffymonkey said ‘We are both delighted and proud to be supporting the Vision in People Football team. ‘It was an absolute treat to see them play in their new kit on Wednesday 13th February and win too! What a team – they are most definitely VIP’s in our eyes. We wish them all the best for the remainder of the season.’
Having won 3 out of their 4 matches on 13th February and now firmly in number 1 position in the league and their eye on the trophy, the team are revved up to keep on top of their game for the next matches on 27th March.
