Directors at Signum Facilities Management are swapping building maintenance for football management for their latest project.
Jill and Ian Wood, directors of award winning Doncaster based Signum FM, have ventured into the world of junior football to help their local community.
The duo have affiliated Barnburgh Athletic Junior Football Club and current have an under 10s side in place.
Jill Wood, director at Signum and Vice President of Doncaster Chamber said: “We are very proud of our Doncaster roots and have set up this new junior football club to help to encourage young people in our local villages to get active and take part in a real community team.
“Our under 10s team trains on the Barnburgh playing field and plays in the Doncaster and District Junior Sunday Football League.
“We’ve been overwhelmed by the support that we’ve received for the club and we have applied for our charter standard from the FA to demonstrate our commitment to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for grassroots football.
“We are a huge football loving family and our relationship with Doncaster Rovers FC has really inspired us to set up this grassroots team.
“Our business has looked after the club’s maintenance at both the stadium and training ground for more than four years and we are proud of our partnership working approach with the club.
“Thanks to Doncaster Rovers we were pleased to be able to invite to lucky families from Barnburgh Primary School to the game on November 17.
“Supporting our local community is extremely important to us and we think this is a great way to do it.”
Barnburgh Athletic Junior Football Club will be expanding next season and looking for players in different age groups so watch this space!
