Hayward Transport support Walsall FC Foundation by sponsoring custom kit!

14 December 2023

Throughout the year, Walsall FC Foundation run numerous sessions every week to benefit the local community.

Ranging from youth sessions for disadvantaged youths, to walking football sessions for those aged 50+, we strive to ensure there is a session for everyone to benefit from.

Friend of the Foundation, Sean Hayward of Hayward Transport, has kindly offered support to these sessions by sponsoring a full custom Walsall FC kit for our participants to wear. These new kits will help our players further connect to Walsall FC and better allow them to represent the club at tournaments and events across the country.

It was great for Sean to visit us here at the stadium to meet some of our players and present the brand new kits at our weekly Beat the Block match, a mental health focused football session. Sean got involved in the highly competitive game learning what it’s all about from our regulars and the positive impact sessions like this can have on people.

We sat down with Sean after the game to hear his thoughts on the project.

"It’s great to be given a chance for Hayward Transport to get involved," he said.

"We understand how important mental health, physical health and sessions like this are to the community and wanted to help out.

"This session has really impressed me; we didn’t completely know what to expect but the commitment, honesty and hard work was all there. We’re really impressed with the guys from the Foundation and of course all the participants who get involved.

"We’ve had a great workout and fully intend to come down again and continue to support what we see as a great opportunity for Walsall Football Club and the local community."

Health Manager Chris Springthorpe added:“We really appreciate the support being offered by Hayward Transport and the benefit it will bring to our participants.

“Being a part of the football club is what motivates and drives many of our players; it gives them even more sense of community. These new kits are going to further expand on that connection by enabling our participants to better represent Walsall FC.

“Our staff and players are already looking forward to using the kits at future competitions; we can’t wait to get started.”

Thank you again to Hayward Transport for their kind support, we hope to continue working together and benefiting the Walsall community.
