Bosco Building a Brighter Future for Youngsters

Bosco Fc Selco Sponsor

​A junior football club which is linked to a Southwark charity designed to improve the lives of local youngsters has hit the back of the net – thanks to a sponsorship from us.

We're thrilled to have backed Bosco FC’s under 12 team with a £3,000 donation towards running costs for the team and a new strip.

Bosco is a small charity-based college which also has a nursery on-site and offers a youth club open for extra-curricular activities after school.

It also runs a football academy for children aged from two to 14 and has nine teams operating from under sevens through to an adult team.

Robert Rosier, club secretary for Bosco FC, said the donation is making a huge difference to the club.

He said: “What sets us apart from other football clubs in the area is our charitable aspect.

“We rely on support from the local community to create opportunities for young players who demonstrate commitment and talent to fulfil their potential.

“We understand that the rising costs of recent times is posing huge challenges for families so Selco’s donation is having an incredibly positive impact on the local community.

“The donation is covering the cost of our under 12s for a whole season, ranging from training sessions, kit and the funding of league matches, so everyone involved with the club is hugely grateful for Selco’s support.”

Bosco’s junior teams play in the South East London and Kent Youth Football League.

Alison Wong, our head of communications and sustainability, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Bosco Football Club and the wider charitable aspects of the organisation.

“It’s a unique offering which brings opportunities on and off the football field to hundreds of youngsters in the deprived area. We're following the progress of the club with great interest.”
