Property developer St. Modwen and its dedicated housebuilding business St. Modwen Homes are continuing their partnership with Wantage Town FC this season, with St. Modwen sponsoring the team by donating £4,000 that will be used for equipment and kit for teams of all ages. The logos for both St. Modwen Homes and the developer’s Kingsgrove project in Wantage appear on the team’s home and away kit.
The club has teams ranging from under 7’s to men’s and women’s first teams in the Southern League Division One Central and the Thames Valley Counties Women’s Football League respectively. The next men’s cup match will be played on 7th December and hopefully the team will continue their journey to the final in March 2022.
Wantage Town FC is located just down the road from St. Modwen’s 1,500-new-home Kingsgrove development. Fantastic progress has been made on site with nearly high quality homes 250 homes completed and occupied. The on-site primary school has now been completed and community facilities are under construction, as St. Modwen continues to go above and beyond to deliver all the elements required for a thriving community at Kingsgrove.
Matt Biddle, First Team Manager and Kingsgrove resident, said of the sponsorship:
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with St Modwen, it’s nice to see a business like St. Modwen show consideration about the local community and willing to help contribute towards giving something back to the town. I know first-hand the great customer experience and values they live by as I purchased a home with St. Modwen in Wantage two years ago. Me and Wantage Town Football Club hope to be in partnership with St. Modwen with more years to come as we both strive to make our town proud.”
William Bayston, Development Director for St. Modwen, said:
“Our sponsorship of Wantage Town FC is part of our support for local groups in and around Kingsgrove. We’re delighted to be able to help Wantage Town and other groups to thrive as we develop and deepen our relationships with the community. We are really looking forward to watching the team and will be there when they get to the final!”
St. Modwen Homes said:
“There’s so much more to creating new places to live than simply just building homes. For us, It is also about supporting the local community by helping local organisations and teams fulfil their goals. We’re wishing the team the best of luck for the season ahead.”
