A VILLAGE football club has been given a huge financial boost after agreeing a sponsorship deal with a communication giant.

Broadway United Football Club struck up the 12 month deal with TalkTalk as part of its investment in the area.

The club has more than 140 youngsters on its books and is currently self-funded through membership and fund-raising events.

Tim Haines, secretary for Broadway United youth teams, said the investment by TalkTalk would be put towards the re-wiring of the clubhouse.

"This is great news to get sponsorship from such a high profile company," he added.

"In this day and age where kids spend a lot of time sat in front of computers, it is very important to have clubs like ours that give kids the chance to keep fit.

"Sponsorship like this is very important to us if we are to continue the level of facilities that we have."

The club which plays at the Milestone Ground in Childswickham Road attracts players from all over the Cotswolds.

Club chairman Gordon Tegg said he was delighted to have struck up the deal.

"We are delighted that TalkTalk has chosen to sponsor the Broadway United Football Club over the coming year," he said.

"We are working hard to raise money to re-wire the clubhouse and the donation from TalkTalk is fantastic.

"With support from TalkTalk we will be able to improve the facilities at the club."

Tristia Clarke, commercial director at TalkTalk said the company was pleased to get involved with the heart of the community.

"We are proud to be supporting Broadway United Football Club," she said.

"They are in the heart of the community and we wish them every success with their endeavours both on and off the field over the coming months."
