Kirkwoods Estate Agents are delighted to support Maidenhead United Youth football team, an under 18’s side who play in the Allied Counties Youth League. Not only does the team give young people an opportunity to play football at different levels and showcase and develop their skills, it is also run entirely by local volunteer coaches and support staff.


Tanya Davis-Hussain, Trustee of the Maidenhead United Charity Trust explained what the £500 donation from Kirkwood’s Estate Agents would be used for:

“Suzy’s money will be put towards a variety of things such as a physio who has to attend each game, equipment including balls, bibs and training equipment, Astro Pitch hire for weekly winter training (this alone costs £4,000 per year) and other costs which crop up during the year. We rely on sponsorships and donations to run the team, so we are very thankful for Suzy’s support. Who knows, we could be nurturing a future David Beckham in our ranks!”

The team train once a week and usually play at least one match game a week.
If you’re interested in seeing the team in action you can find out more about fixtures, results and player profiles on their team page. Their home ground is York Road Maidenhead – acknowledged by The Football Association and FIFA to be the oldest continuously-used senior association football ground in the world by the same club, as the York Road ground has been home to the club since 1871.

New supporters are always welcome at matches and if you would like to support the team there are plenty of ways to donate too. They have player sponsorship which is £30 per player to sponsor an individual player or at their weekly home games they run a ‘Gate Fee’ to help raise money charging £5 per adult and £3 concessions.

Suzy Kirkwood says:
“Having lived in Maidenhead all of my life, I’m always keen to support groups and organisations within our local community. I’m pleased to be able to support the team in this way and hope that my donation will make a difference for the team. I wish the ‘Young Magpies’ all the best in their fixtures this season.
