To help children in our community get active, we have sponsored a local under 16’s football team – Heywood Rangers.
Heywood Rangers FC was formed in 2003 to give young boys and girls the opportunity to keep fit, play football and be part of a team.
There are five teams in the club; Under 10’s going up to the Under 16’s. The managers of the club are FA qualified coaches working on a voluntary basis and older players are encouraged to gain a referee qualification.
We understand the positive effect Heywood Rangers FC has on the young people playing in the teams and for that reason Adelaide have sponsered the under 16’s team for the past four years.
The under 16’s team consists of 20 players, we provide them with home and away kits each season. We also help with the funding needed to allow them to take part in a league and a tournament in Blackpool which lasts all weekend.
A spokesperson for the club comments on the support we provide. “Adelaide’s support and sponsorship is very valuable and very much appreciated by our club”
Heywood Rangers under 16’s are currently in the Bolton Boys and Girls Federation League and doing well. They have had an excellent season so far and Adelaide wish them the very best of luck in their future games.
