Royal Earl Football club in Sheffield are the happy recipients of vital ground and kit sponsorship from house-builder Taylor Wimpey.

The Meadowhall Sunday League team – dubbed the History Boys after three successive league cup wins – were struggling to obtain funding to help keep them afloat, when the developer stepped in.

Team manager Rob Moorwood said: “We play only a short distance from Taylor Wimpey’s The Banks development in Waverley and were over the moon when they offered their support.

“Without sponsorship funding like this, and no ground, one of the most successful amateur Sunday league teams in Sheffield would be no more.”

Anne Bagshaw of Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire said: “It’s a pleasure to be of help. We’re delighted that our sponsorship is making such a huge difference.”
