Hello and welcome to the McRae’s blog, the latest news from McRae’s Sales, Lettings and Management.
It’s always our goal to do our best by the community in which we operate – whether through the service we provide as property agents or in helping community projects.
As we’ve reported before, we have been delighted to sponsor multiple events and organisations in the area and we have news of our very latest major “signing”.
McRae’s are delighted to say we’re now sponsoring the West Essex under 16 Black football team.
The junior team, playing in the Echo Premier Division will now feature our McRae’s logo on their kit.
After a slightly unpromising debut, the team has grown in every way. They started as an under 8’s team more than nine years ago, playing five-a-side in the ELE league. That season they lost their first game 8-0. They played the same team in the last game of that season and drew 2-2!
Team manager Mark Lawfull explained: “We moved over to the Echo League at u10’s, in the 6th out of seven divisions and have worked hard to improve every season, culminating in us being in the Echo Premier Division this season. Over the years we have attended national tournaments in Bournemouth, Yarmouth and Clacton and have won the UPR and Videx summer cups.
Two of the squad were with me when we started at u8’s, one of them being my son Henry and over half of the squad have been together since u10.”
The team boasts 17 boys now, the core attending Highams Park, Chingford Foundation and Woodbridge schools. A number of them have represented Waltham Forest. The aim is for these to eventually represent the senior 1st team.
Managing director of McRae’s, Craig McRae said: “We’re thrilled to be backing West Essex Under 16 Black. We very much hope that together we can be a winning team. We’re looking forward to seeing some wonderful results from all involved. I might be biased, but I like to think having McRae’s on your side is already a big win.”
