Heaward Sports Ltd. help 'Lads and Dads' secure more grant funding

We are really pleased to tell you that we have once again been able to help Staffordshire youth football charity ‘Ladsandads’ secure more sports grants. This time funding has been awarded by both the Red Industries Landfill Community Fund and the Football Foundation.

The funding which totals £51,550 will be used to purchase new grounds maintenance equipment incuding a seeder, slitter and assorted attachments. Whilst the brand new equipment will be based at Ladsandads Trubshaw Cross site, which was the key focus of the bids. When its not needed there it will be used at the other sites this dynamic charity now operates across North Staffordshire. In this way literally thousands of children and young people will benefit from greatly improved natural turf football facilites to play on each season long into the future.

With dedicated volunteers, great facilities and quality coaching from Ladsandads football fans should look out for another future football star to emerge from the area!

  • Mark Chamberlain – Stoke City FC and England
  • Garth Crooks OBE – Stoke City FC, Tottenham Hotspur FC & England
  • Adrian Heath – Stoke City FC & Everton FC
  • Robbie Earl MBE – Port Vale FC & Jamaica

Ladsandads certainly have a great track record in producing talented players including the above and this investment can only help!
