The Leek Town “Wildcats” under 8’s girls football team have completed a cup double of the Staffordshire Shield trophy and Staffordshire cup winners cup.

Back in January, Alpha were announced as team sponsors of the newly formed team, with managing Director Paul Clews keen to support local youth development:

“We do a lot for our young people through our apprenticeship programme through local events, projects and charity activities but this is something a bit different for the wider community. It’s great to be able to help local young people enjoy sports and hopefully they’ll do well in their first season”

The girls secured the first of the two trophies on 11th May after beating Lichfield City 4-1 and completed the double on the 18th May, collecting the Staffordshire Cup Winners Cup. Everyone associated with Leek Town and Alpha are incredibly proud of the Girls’ achievement so soon.

Alpha will continue the young team and wish them every success on and off the pitch during next season.
