BOVEY Tracey’s youth teams are set to benefit from a £750 cash injection from mineral firm Sibelco.
It is the fourth year that Sibelco has helped the club, one of scores in the region to benefit from the company’s backing for community sport.
‘With help from companies like this we can complete a lot more projects, such as bringing on the colts, a major part of our club with more than 100 registered members,” said Bovey Tracey chairman Nigel Mountford.
“I know that I’m biased but I think we’ve one of the best colt sections in this area.
“We’re very proud of them and the team who work with them, and with a total membership of about 300 people I don’t think we’re doing at all bad overall for a small town.
“As a club we’re in a good place right now and feeling fairly confident for the coming season, particularly with some new players including one from Zimbabwe.”
Sibelco’s Keith Lee said: “We like to support the local sporting community in different areas including bowling, cricket, rugby and fishing.
“We’re glad to be doing it and it’s great when we know it helps like it does here in Bovey Tracey.”
Sibelco, which has clay quarrying and processing plants in Kingsteignton, also hosts the annual Rotary Dart Vale Races at its East Gold works.
