Ramsbury FC donate footballs, strips and football boots in support of Ukraine refugee children.
Ramsbury FC collected team strips, footballs and football boots to donate to Ukraine refugee children re-located to the UK.
Ramsbury FC U17s Coach Geoff Pratt, pictured with his son Ben who plays in the U17s squad and Ant Atkinson from the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, and a parent in the U16s team, responded to a request for donations of football kit to support children who have been re-located to the UK due to the war in Ukraine.
The response was instant and good quality football boots, Ramsbury FC strips and a number of training balls were quickly handed to Ant Atkinson of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust in support of this worthy cause.
It is planned to do more in the near future and hopefully provide more kit and support to those children that need it.
Ramsbury FC has previously supported ATE, a local registered charity that supports communities living in a remote area of Ghana in Africa, by donating strips and boots and will look to continue to support similar charities that provide much-needed support to families and children in difficult circumstances.

Ramsbury FC are proud to support ATE and also support the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust and their aim in creating a sustainable future for our communities and the animals and people within them. Learn more about the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust here: Wiltshire Wildlife Trust

Ramsbury FC U16s earn gritty draw to clinch second place in U16s Division 2!
A huge achievement for Coach Mark Savory and the Ramsbury FC U16s team as they earned a gritty away draw to clinch second place by Swindon Supermarine FC U16s in Division 2.
Trailing 1-0 at half time in a fiercely contested game, Ramsbury driven on by Captain Bill Booth finally got the equaliser through an Issac Savory goal to make it 1-1 and get the point they needed.
It is a great achievement by the U16s squad who have never say day die attitude and always give their best. The Coaches and Club could not be prouder of the whole squad.
Well done to Supermarine FC U16s who were the stand out team all team and are crowned champions. Ramsbury FC U16s look forward to hosting them at the Recreation Ground for the last game of the season.
Ramsbury FC U16s win away 2-0 against Shrivenham Youth FC U16s
Another solid performance saw Ramsbury FC U16s win 2-0 away to Shrivenham Youth FC U16s and stay 3rd in a very competitive Division 2 title race and only 1 point behind Bradford Town Youth U16s Mustangs but with 2 games in hand.
Goals in each half from Issac Savory and Henry Smith sealed the win and Olly Morris was Captain as regular Captain Bill Booth did not play. Well done Olly and to all the team for a great away win.
Durrington FC U16s at home next on Sunday 20 Mar and hopefully another 3 points!
Ramsbury FC U16s continued their fine home form with a gritty 4-2 win against Cirencester Town U16s in heavy rain and poor conditions.
It was the visitors who were quickest off the mark with a very well executed goal after 5 minutes and who continued to look dangerous on the break. But Ramsbury pulled one back before the visitors went ahead again on the 20 minute mark. Ramsbury switched on and started to dominate midfield play and used the wide areas much better that saw them score two excellent goals to make it 3-2 at half time.
The second half was all Ramsbury as they dominated play and were unfortunate to not go 4-2 up with a controversial disallowed Max Phillips goal. But the decision stood and Cirencester pushed for an equaliser in worsening conditions that saw both teams struggle to stay upright!
Ramsbury went close again with an indirect free kick and a near miss at close range and were finally rewarded with a last minute penalty just before the whistle that was coolly tucked away by Capt Bill Booth.
The score ended 4-2 with two first half goals by Charlie Chambers and another by Drew Wild. It was a tough game and a great result.
Next up is away to Shrivenham who Ramsbury comprehensively defeated earlier in the season, but will be tougher opposition at home.
