A.B. Walker has become one of the sponsors of Burghfield Football Club Saturday Mens. We have bought warm up hoodies and warm up T shirts for the team.
Our Funeral Administrator in Thatcham, Carolyn Tuttle coaches the Saturday Mens team with Barrie Awbery. Carolyn also coaches the under fours and Walking Mens/Womens Football.
‘I think the sponsorship is brilliant,’ she says. ‘It really does benefit Saturday Mens. When we warm up on match days the men are normally just in a T shirt, which is absolutely freezing in winter. Now they can wear warmer hoodies thanks to A.B. Walker.’
Established in 1989, Burghfield Football Club is an FA Charter Standard Club with over 400 members consisting of boys and girls from aged 3 to adults. The Saturday Mens team have been promoted and are in the Thames Valley Premier League.
Carolyn has been part of the team here at A.B. Walker for the last 15 years.
Her brother David Tuttle used to play for Tottenham Hotspur and she has been interested in football ever since she was a teenager. She has fond memories of trips to White Hart Lane.
Carolyn, who lives in Burghfield, now spends her spare time coaching at Burghfield Football Club. And she loves it. ‘It brings everyone together,’ she says.
