Hadleigh United get a kitchen makeover

HADLEIGH United FC have a brand-new kitchen in their clubhouse.

HADLEIGH United FC have received a brand-new kitchen in their clubhouse at The Millfield.

The club have received a brand-new kitchen from kitchen supplier Howdens as part of a partnership with England Football.

The Howdens’ Game Changer programme was launched in April 2023 to improve clubhouse facilities at grassroots football clubs across the UK and is set to deliver more than 450 kitchens to clubs over a three-year period.

Hadleigh United FC Treasurer Rolf Beggerow said: “We are thrilled to have been selected to be part of the Howdens Game Changer programme, and to have been successful with our application and now we can boast a new kitchen in our clubhouse.

“Having this new kitchen will mean that the clubhouse can be used by the whole community, from our junior players to parents and supporters, and to our volunteers who give up their time each week to support us.

“It really is great to see the impact that the Game Changer programme is having on grassroots football first-hand.”

Howdens Ipswich Manager Adrian Kirby added: “We’re incredibly proud to be supplying a kitchen to Hadleigh United Football Club.

“The community that we operate in is very important to us.  We know that kitchens are the heart of our homes and believe that they should be the heart of our local communities too.

“There is a lot of attention on grassroots football and what happens on the pitch but off-pitch facilities are just as important. Clubhouses are often the hub of the community, where teas and coffees keep parents warm on rainy weekends, where the frozen wet feet of the army of volunteers dry off and when the post-match discussion begins.”

Hadleigh United, whose first team play in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division, are the second Suffolk club to receive a new kitchen through the partnership.

The kitchen at Framlingham Town FC underwent a makeover last autumn.

The Howdens Game Changer programme was launched by football legends Jill Scott, MBE and Chris Kamara, MBE who lent their support by driving home the importance of grassroots football and clubhouse facilities on their own careers.

With depots all over the country, Howdens carries one of the largest in-stock ranges in the UK across kitchens, flooring, joinery and hardware, so that products are readily available and projects of any size can be completed without delay.
