Celebrities visit Lymm High to help Pitch In!

Premier League referee, Anthony Taylor, and Liverpool and England player Ellie Fletcher visited Lymm High School yesterday to witness a cheque for £10,000 being handed over to support “Pitch In!”, the school’s bid to build a brand new 3G pitch.

The money was being donated by Lymm Rovers Junior Football Club and the two celebrities were joined by students from Statham Primary School as well as Lymm High’s own students, all of whom also play for Lymm Rovers.

Gavin Laidlaw, chairman of Lymm Rovers said:

“Lymm Rovers have worked as a partner with Lymm High School for many years now, continuing to grow as a club and continuing to provide a safe and fun environment to allow children and adults to learn how to play the game.

We share the school’s ambition to have first class facilities in place for the students and wider community.

It gives us great pleasure to donate £10,000 to the Pitch In! campaign with money that we have set aside for exactly this sort of opportunity”

Gwyn Williams, headteacher said:

“We are very grateful for the money, which provides a significant boost in our campaign to raise £100,000 this year.

Having Ellie and Anthony here today, alongside children from Statham Primary and representatives from Lymm Rovers, underlines the fact that this is a bid for a facility to support the whole community. I know Anthony is desperate to see more pitches built locally in order to support training of referees and it would also allow us to offer significantly more pitch time in the evenings and weekends to local groups. It’s a very exciting project.”

Ellie Fletcher, who has been capped three times for England this season, said:

“Having a 3G pitch in the area would be fantastic for local clubs. There’s growing evidence that girls in particular love playing on these surfaces and having one in Lymm would provide a massive boost for girls football. I’m delighted to be able to support this campaign.”
