Our 2012s have been back in action after lockdown and now they can enjoy their football even more with a brand new home kit to wear.
Since the total shutdown of football in March, the youngsters have been desperate to play football for months but with the purchase of a new strip, their wait for a return to the beautiful game has now been worth it.
With the help of friends and families of the players and the coaches, as well as support from Stephen Connon, the team sold a football card initially which would send them on their way to buy the new strip which the kids could wear.
But in addition to that, the team also agreed a sponsorship deal with local charity Mind Mosaic Child and Family Therapies, who were more than happy to support the team.
The charity, which is based in Greenock, were delighted to be involved in helping the youngsters out during these difficult times and have been crucial in giving the kids the opportunity to have the new strip, with Sandra Boyle and the board providing great support to the kids which we are very grateful for.
And so, kit-creating guru Gavin Macintosh put his skills to the test and created a magnificent strip for the kids, and once the mock-up strip design was agreed by everyone, the strip was given the go-ahead to become the new official strip of our 2012s.
Coach Craig Scott has been very complimentary of the new relationship between Mind Mosaic and our 2012s as he said: “We were delighted to link up with Mind Mosaic children and Family Therapies as we all see the real value of the organisation and how important a service it is to the children, young people and families of Inverclyde.”
Craig also was delighted to have been able to give back to Mind Mosaic after their continued support as he said: “The fact we can promote them in any way is a real bonus for us and as a thank you to them, it brought us so much joy to donate £400 to the charity to show that we truly are thankful to them.”
We would like to pay a personal thanks to Stephen Connon, Mind Mosaic Children and Family Therapies and also Gavin Macintosh for designing the strips for the kids; all of this support has gone such a long way for our youngsters and for this, we thank you!
