Support for local football club

Trustees are supporting Omega 92 football club by providing the funds for new shirts and other items of kit for their young players.

Omega 92 fc provides football in the community, turning no child away and provides development squads for children to develop at their own pace where they can enjoy sport and training without the pressure of competitive games as well as arranging friendlies and tournaments for them to play and enjoy. 

They are proud to be one of the cheapest football clubs to play for the Medway towns as they believe sport should not be denied to any child due to their social background.  Consequently, they welcome children into the club from low income families, single parents and fostering, with the club in many cases meeting the child’s playing costs, even providing football boots and training kit in extreme family hardship.  Trustees recognise the excellent work they do and are pleased to be able to support them.
