Hadrian Healthcare Sponsors Bohemian Football Club U16s

Hadrian Healthcare Group is sponsoring the newly formed U16s section at Gosforth Bohemian Football Club, thought to be the first U16s in the club’s 120 year history.

Around 20 boys are now involved in the section and the team is competing in the North East Youth Development League (NEYDL) this season.

Michael Wood, club coach said: “The section was set up from scratch over the summer when a couple of the boys and their parents approached the senior club. It's been a real team effort from all concerned to get the U16s up and running and they are coming together strongly in each game they play.

“We were delighted when Hadrian Healthcare agreed to sponsor the team’s waterproof jackets so we can train in all weathers.

“The club has a long and well documented history and I haven’t seen any reference to an U16s section before so unless anyone knows differently, we’ve broken new ground here."

Allison Lawton lifestyle coordinator at The Manor House care home in Gosforth, which is part of Hadrian Healthcare Group, said: “We’re very happy to be able to support the Bohemian U16s. As part of the community we like to support local organisations whenever we can.”

The club is run by volunteers and all players pay to play, an arrangement that has been in place since it was set up in 1894.

The club will open their new football foundation pitch on 15 November launching a year of celebration for their 120th anniversary.
