The team currently has a squad of 15 players from five different schools near to Whitnash, allowing players from different backgrounds and friendship groups to come together and represent the club every week.

Adam Shuttleworth, coach at Whitnash FC said: “We’re so grateful to Taylor Wimpey for their generous donation. The team are all eager to learn, improve and develop, when you combine this with the work ethic and determination they show it’s not difficult to see why they are enjoying a very successful season. With this in mind, and with the kit from Taylor Wimpey, all of us at Whitnash FC are so excited to see how the team perform in the new year.”
