MK Dons Ladies football team has agreed a five-figure sponsorship deal with MK specialist neurological care provider PJ Care, to help develop girls’ football in the area.
PJ Care provides specialist neurological care at Mallard House and Bluebirds in Milton Keynes.
Jan Flawn is the founder and chair of the company: “We are really pleased to be working with MK Dons to help with the development of girls’ and women’s football,” she said.
“Our sponsorship will help girls from the local community not only develop their football skills, but also their health, fitness and general well-being at a really important time in their lives.”
The money will go towards improving the fitness and well-being of girls in the four junior teams at under 11, 13, 15 and under 17 levels.
Thanks to a partnership with gym owner Laura Bowley from Happy Bodies, Centre of Excellence players will undergo a special training regime tailored around their needs, and the MK Dons Ladies elite squad will be given a similar regime of fitness tests.
“Thanks to the fantastic support we have from PJ Care we are able to continue developing the female programme and raise the profile of the game in the local community, most noticeably within the girls’ elite game and the Centre of Excellence,” added Charlene Ward, from the MK Dons Sports and Education Trust.
