We are pleased to announce that the DVC football Academy has gained sponsorship from local business Sandhill Golf Club. This is the first time the Academy has been sponsored by an external business. The team consists of players from all curriculum areas from Dearne Valley College, not just Sports and Public Services.
The team currently plays in the AoC Colleges League
Not only were Sandhill Golf Club kind enough to purchase kit for the team, but they have also provided training gear and equipment for the team.
Commenting on the sponsorship, Sandhill Golf Club owner club Vince Keating said:
“Sandhill Golf Club is proud to support a local College sports club and its students. We want to actively encourage the students in all their future successes. It has been great to build a working network to support sport learners as part of their course.”
Dearne Valley College and the Football Academy team would like to thank Vince Keating of Sandhill Gold Club for their generous sponsorship opportunity.
