Our team was made up of complete novices, all new to the game, and recently we celebrated our first birthday, and what better way than to celebrate with a new sponsorship.

“We cannot thank Tops Day Nurseries enough for their wonderful support and generous funding. We hope to do them proud win lose or draw, and promote our shared values of inclusion, support, and development.”
