Curti Lifts has recently been pleased to sponsor the under 9s team for the 2017/18 season at St Columba’s JFC. Formed in 1989 and with around 100 children who train and play at the club each week, St Columba’s actively encourages children to take part in a team sport that promotes discipline, fair play, sportsmanship & community spirit. The club plays at Ling Bob Playing Fields in Pellon and boasts strong relationships with local schools including Luddendenfoot Academy, Ling Bob & Warley, as well as links with professional clubs such as Sheffield United and Halifax Town. The club’s most famous past player is none other than Sheffield United keeper Paddy Kenny.
As you can imagine the financial obligations can be overwhelming and they rely massively on support and donations from local businesses. We have been privileged enough to support our youngsters by supplying a new kit and we look forward to watching their progress. They have already won their first 2 games (7-0 & 4-1) and continue to go from strength to strength. Keep it up boys, next stop The Shay Stadium!
