Avro FC Football Club receives materials from Selco

An Oldham grassroots football club has hit the back of the net by securing £1,000 from Selco Builders Warehouse.

Avro FC, which has more than 500 players, will use the money to fund the development of coaches in safeguarding, first aid, equality, inclusion and diversity and mental health.

Avro has 25 teams throughout the age groups, with the first team flying high in the North West Counties League Premier Division.

Charlie O’Brien, operations director at Avro FC, said: “We are hugely grateful for the donation Selco has made.

“We have around 500 players involved in the various teams and it’s a huge undertaking to keep all the plates spinning.

“The development of our coaches is imperative to the success of the football club and the educational support they will receive from Selco’s donation will be invaluable.”

Selco has 74 branches across the UK, including four in Manchester in Ardwick, Ashton Moss, Baguley and Salford.

Kevin O’ Rourke, branch manager at Selco Ashton Moss based on Alexandria Drive off Lord Sheldon Way, said: “We look to support the local communities in which we operate any way we can.

“Grassroots sports clubs are always at the heart of those communities and Avro is no different with so many teams and players.

“We are delighted to play a part in supporting the development of coaches who give so much time and effort to ensuring people of all ages have the chance to enjoy the benefits of being involved in competitive football.”
