Patrick Bamford spent time at Beeston Juniors Football Club on Wednesday morning (2 June 2021) during the off season to show his support for a renovation project between Leeds United and the club’s official sleeve sponsor JD Sports.
Leading fashion sports retailer JD have spearheaded the project to completely renovate and refurbish the local football club that lies close to Elland Road on Cardinal Square, completing huge improvements for the club and its players moving forward.
To help show his support for the work that has been done whilst also making his own contributions, the Leeds United striker spent time having a tour of the facilities, meeting staff and volunteers and hosting an exclusive shooting masterclass with 25 young children aged from five to 16 that play for Beeston Juniors.
During his time on site, the 27-year-old was also able to help with some of the final refurbishments, learning more about the project and the work that has been done to completely transform the building.
All of the work that has been completed was done with the help of Gray and Sons with support from volunteers through the Leeds United Foundation and the local community. The renovations and refurbishments that have taken place, include new flooring, ceiling, doors, a refitted kitchen, upgraded changing room facilities, a new lick of paint, new furniture and electrical goods for the clubhouse along with external work such as guttering and design work.
Also showing their support for the project were youngsters from the Foundation’s NCS programme, as part of their Action Day project they teamed up with Burley Banksy to design and paint colourful artwork outside the building to compliment all of the hard work being done inside.
During the activity that took place earlier this week, JD also provided prizes and merchandise for the families in attendance, with Bamford taking the time to hand out awards, have photographs with youngsters and sign autographs.
The Leeds United Foundation work closely with Beeston Junior Football Club and will continue to show their support to the club and its players, working with coaches and young players and hosting football sessions and holiday camps at the newly revamped facilities.
