Former England rugby star Will Greenwood said: “AEG’s support of grassroots teams plays a very important part in local community sport. AEG’s sponsorship offers access to sporting facilities and equipment and encourages more people, whatever standard, to take up sport.
“This competition hopes to provide a boost to the winning team with some world class coaching and thank the unsung heroes. It will be an opportunity to reward the long serving parents, volunteers, and friends of the clubs.
“The people who are there every week from the start of the season to the end, in the wind and in the rain, win or lose.”
