Copping, said: “We would like to thank Greedy Gordons for their individual
player sponsorship for Bronte which will help improve the programme and
facilities for all the girls at Peterborough Academy. Our aim is to produce as
much homegrown talent as possible and ultimately to give local girls a chance
of getting a contract and having a career as a professional footballer.”
