We are delighted to sponsor a team of up-and-coming young football players. Thomas Westcott Chartered Accountants is now the proud sponsors of Crediton Youth Football Club’s under-9 girls.

The team – the youngest girls’ side in the club’s history – now look match-perfect in their new blue kit, complete with our logo.

Looking the part has made a big difference to the recently formed team. Previously, players were making do with borrowed strips from the club’s older age groups. Long, baggy shorts and oversized shirts were hampering the girls’ game, and the team needed to find a sponsor and a kit of their own.

“They won their first match recently and are doing really well but they had been wearing the under-11s strip and it was too big for them,” said Jo Carr, whose daughter Molly plays for the under-9s. “They needed a sponsor and a kit of their own.”

Jo works in our Exeter office and asked if we could offer any support to the latest Crediton youth side. 

“We were delighted when Thomas Westcott said they would support them,” said Jo. “It’s going to make such a difference. The girls are all doing so well and really enjoying their games. Molly scored her first goal last week!”

Molly said having the right kit was helping her perform on the pitch. “It’s nice to have our own and not wear the under 11s old kit,” she said. “I love the colours and style.”

The girls under-9s team recently beat their Torquay rivals and are hoping to go on to win more matches this season. They train once a week and regularly play on Sundays.

Partner Patrick Tigwell added: “The Thomas Westcott ethos is to be ‘by your side’, which means that through our extensive network of offices, we are based in the communities where our clients and team members live,” said Patrick. “We therefore think it’s very important to sponsor sports teams like the Crediton under-9 girls because they are so important to these communities. 

“Also, over the last few years, we have witnessed girls’ participation in sport really taking off and it is lovely to be part of that ongoing process.
