A PRESENTATION was arranged by Seneley & Garswood Junior Football Club.

Held at Garswood Labour Club, the presentation was by Mark King from the Oliver King Foundation and followed months of fundraising by the junior football club who have raised a total of £8,000 to provide lifesaving defibrillators to all of the club’s teams.

They will now be available at every training session, club activities and pitch side on match days for the benefit of both the Seneley & Garswood club but also their opponents and spectators.

Mark King, of the Oliver King Foundation, said: “This is such a fantastic achievement by the club, who I’ve known and worked with for a number of years now, providing a defibrillator for every team at every pitch side is unprecedented and certainly the first club to have done so to my knowledge”.

Gordon Johnson, designated safeguarding officer at Liverpool County FA, added: “Seneley & Garswood Junior football Club are one of our many FA accredited Charter Standard Clubs who continue to raise the bar in providing safe, fun and enjoyable surroundings for their children to participate in football.

"Their provision of a defibrillator to every team in the club is unprecedented and deserves recognition, it shows the true commitment of Club Secretary Tom Nugent and the fantastic team of volunteers he has around him running the football club.”
