A NEW investment in broadband technology is also to boost sporting facilities in Kennoway.
Communications giant TalkTalk has announced it intends not only to invest £50,000 in technology to bring value broadband offers to Kennoway and Windygates, by expanding its next-generation network in the area, but it also plans to pump money into the local amateur football side, Kennoway AFC.
The 12-month deal will see TalkTalk sponsor the club with the cash being used to update the floodlighting at Cotlands Park.
This will enable teams to play in the evenings during the darker months.
Stephen Campbell, chairman at Kennoway AFC, told the Mail: “We are delighted that TalkTalk has chosen to sponsor Kennoway AFC for the coming year.
“We are working hard to raise money to update the floodlights at the club and the donation from TalkTalk is fantastic.
“With the support from TalkTalk, we will be able to improve the facilities at the club.”
Kennoway AFC was established in the 1930s before reforming in 1983.
The team prides itself on bringing together all kinds of people from the area and welcomes anyone interested in getting involved in the sport, offering them the opportunity to play football and enjoy exercise.
Tristia Clarke, commercial director at TalkTalk, said: “Investing locally allows us to bring our value offers to even more families and we are proud to be supporting Kennoway AFC.
“They are in the heart of the community and we wish them every success with their endeavours both on and off the field”.
