Redrow sponsored Fleur-De-Lys A.F.C, based near Blackwood, Caerphilly, so they could purchase the rain coats as part of their winter training kit.

The trendy black zip-up jackets are ideal to keep out the wind and rain as the under 8’s side train with dedicated coach Jason Needs.

Delighted Mr Needs said: “They’re all kitted out for the winter period now. We’re very pleased with them and the quality is very good.

“All members of the squad have been fully equipped including coaching staff. They’ll wear them all the time because we train outdoors. They’ll probably get more wear out the of the rain jackets than they will out of their kits because of all this wet weather we’ve been having”

“We’d like to say a big thank you to Redrow for sponsoring us.”

Redrow donated £375 to the club, which was set up in 2000 with just eight members.

They have since gone from strength to strength and now have more than 80 members, aged between eight and 16, who all train close to Redrow’s Cwm Calon development in Ystrad Mynach.

Debby Pavitt, area sales manager for Redrow Homes (South Wales) says: “Redrow is always looking for new ways to get involved in the communities in which we build. We are proud to be associated with Fleur-De-Lys AFC under 8’s and wish them every success for the new season.”

Redrow development Cwm Calon is part of a large regeneration project in Ystrad Mynach, near Caerphilly, aimed at bringing employment and investment to the area. The new homes form part of the regeneration of the former Penallta Colliery into a vibrant urban village environment, with the award winning home builder creating stylish new homes plus a school, employment and recreational facilities.

There are still a wide-variety of properties for sale at the site, which has more than 650 homes on it, including one and two-bedroom apartments, and two, three, four and five-bedroom houses

One-bedroom Avon-style apartments start from £105,995 and there are properties to suit everyone up to the beautiful five-bedroom Otford-style home priced at £319,995.
