“We wanted to make a donation that can specifically help the players, we know that they balance playing with jobs and families, so it’s great for us to be able to give them something to support them to be a wolves player,” Club Captain, Danny Batth told wolves.co.uk.
Yesterday, Clare Hakeman and Natalie Widdal received the donation from Batth, Carl Ikeme and Dave Edwards. The players shared stories of their different Christmas training schedules, as Wolves Women have an extended break as they aren’t in action till the 8th January.
Hakeman said of the donation “Its great for the players to support us like this, we work hard to be as professional as possible and donations like this, along with all the other support we get will help us to push towards our aim of getting promotion this year!”
Wolves Women go into the Christmas break in second place in the FAWPL Midlands Division 1 table, six points behind leaders Loughborough Foxes, with two games in hand. They start 2017 in SSE WFA Cup action as they travel to take on Nottingham Forest at Basford United FC in the Second Round Proper on Sunday 8th January.
