The Henry

Ridge sponsor Girls Football Team Kit

Girls football at The Henry Beaufort School continues to flourish this year and we are delighted to announce that property and construction consultants, Ridge, have sponsored the teams’ new kit.

As a Football Foundation school, Henry Beaufort passionately drives female-led sports, with each year group demonstrating an exceptionally skilled girls football team. The 2015-16 season saw both the U13 and U14 teams crowned Hampshire County Champions, with the opportunity to wear the crown again in 2016-17 with the U14 and U16 teams currently in the final.

All teams across the school, U13, U14, U15 and U16, have played in the English School FA National Cup competition this season, where more than 1200 teams entered. The girls have travelled to Reading, Bournemouth and Poole, with the U14 and U15 teams making it through to the last 32 and the U16 girls through to the last 16.

This season the girls football teams have been generously sponsored by Ridge, with funds donated allowing for a new playing kit. Ridge are a multi-discipline property & construction consultancy who are keen to promote women within construction and inform young people about the opportunities available to them within the industry.

Miss Colebourn, Head of PE said: ‘The girls now have a kit they can use for all their games. They look incredibly smart and they are extremely proud of it!’.

Steve Cross, Partner at Ridge said: ‘As a successful local property and construction consultancy in Winchester, Ridge are extremely proud to put our name onto the new football kit for The Henry Beaufort School girls teams. We wish them continued success in their new kit.’
