Corry backs power booster for local clubs

By Graham Luney

Northern Ireland international Corry Evans has given his backing to Electric Ireland's new initiative to support grassroots football clubs.

The Blackburn Rovers midfielder has helped launch Club Game Changers, an initiative developed by Electric Ireland and the Irish Football Association to enable local clubs to raise funds.

Every time a customer switches to Electric Ireland online or over the phone and nominates a club under Club Game Changers that club will receive £25.

This funding will go towards new equipment, football kits, bus journeys etc for local clubs and will help build strong foundations within the clubs, allowing them to grow as both a club and as a community.

Evans said: "We all started somewhere and we all know that it is the power of communities pulling together that makes local clubs successful.

"This scheme is certainly an easy way of raising money for local grassroots football clubs, supporting them in giving our future heroes an opportunity to achieve their goals."

Also supporting the initiative are Marissa Callaghan, Northern Ireland Senior Women's Captain, and Michael Boyd, Irish FA Director of Football Development.
