A sunny Sunday morning in September found Dave, Envirocare MD on the side lines of the under 14’s Euxton Girls football match at Wellfield School, Leyland. The girl’s regular training sessions are held at the Buckshaw Sports facility, a facility managed and staffed by Enviorcare. “We were approached by Dennis, club secretary, to sponsor the girl’s this season” reported Dave “it seemed like a good opportunity to strengthen our link with the local community and to support the regular users of the Buckshaw sports pitches.”
Euxton Girls were founded in 2002 and have several teams ranging from under 10’s to under 18’s. They’ve had their success stories over the years, in April of this year the under 14’s team competed in an international tournament in Holland and finished a more than acceptable third place. In 2009 four members of the squad made the transition into ladies football and are now playing for local teams Preston North End and Blackburn Rovers.
