We’re proud to sponsor the AFC Portchester Youth U10 Vikings
Fun & Active Playgrounds are proud to sponsor the AFC Portchester Youth U10 Vikings for another year, supporting the young players in enjoying their football.
Though our mission is to promote active play and fitness at schools, we’re pleased to be able to extend this into non-school hours too. Through our sponsorship, we hope to encourage the children to keep active, stay fit, and most importantly – have fun!
Football is a fantastic sport for kids to take part in as it has many benefits for physical and mental health. From developing different skills such as teamwork, cooperation and coordination, to maintaining a good stamina and improving fitness. Playing as a team also helps to create friendships and improve communication.
This year will be the third year Fun & Active Playgrounds has sponsored AFC Portchester U10 Vikings and the second time we have provided them with a branded football kit.
After winning an impressive 17 out of 17 league matches last season, the U10 Vikings have now been put in the league above because of their advanced ability.
Previously playing 5 aside matches as the U8 Royals with a squad of 6, they are now playing 7 aside matches with a squad of 9, against teams who are a year older than them.
Our very own Managing Director Dave’s nephew plays for the U10 Vikings, amongst many other talented and aspiring young footballers. All of the players have trained for academy teams and are looking forward to the challenge of playing against slightly older children this season.
Team Manager, Alan says “The club really appreciates the support from Fun & Active Playgrounds, enabling the kids to have so much fun playing with their teammates and building lasting relationships.”
So far this season the U10 Vikings have played 6 games and won 3. We wish them luck with the rest of the years matches and hope they continue to keep active playing their favourite sport!
