Solicitors give youth team early Christmas present
16 December 2008

Skelmersdale solicitors Scott Rees & Co has given a local youth football club an early Christmas present after 30 footballs were stolen.

Scott Rees, which specialises in accident claims, has donated 30 new footballs to Dynamo Rangers FC in Skelmersdale to replace the ones which were stolen from the girls Under 13s squad a few weeks ago.

Since the balls were stolen, we’ve had to beg and borrow old footballs which have been a bit past their sell-by date”, said Caroline Stewart, club secretary of the Dynamo Rangers.

But now, thanks to Scott Rees, the girls have got their own set of footballs again; the girls' manager Pam Ashton was thrilled and we would all like to say a big thanks to Scott Rees,” Caroline added.

Scott Rees & Co has been supporting youth football in Skelmersdale since 2003, and became the official sponsor of the Dynamo Rangers when it launched in 2005.

Royston Smith, managing partner of Scott Rees & Co, said: “The Dynamos are a great part of the local community here in Skelmersdale and when we heard that the footballs had been stolen, we wanted to help.

We wish the girls every success for the rest of the season.”

The Rangers field 18 teams of boys and girls from the ages of six to 16.

The boys play in the Skelmersdale Junior League and the girls play in the West Lancashire Girls League at Liverpool Road playing fields.

More than 220 local youngsters are members of the club and several players have been selected for professional youth academies including Everton FC.
