Hade Edge Junior and Senior Football Club is showing off its new-look changing rooms, thanks to a paint donation from the Dulux Let’s Colour project.
The club, on Flowery Fields, has been part of the community for more than 100 years and currently provides training facilities for 200 members.
It is also used by a number of groups including cubs, beavers and scouts, while hosting events such as birthdays and christenings.
As the club had recently moved into a brand new building, staff and members were keen to put their own stamp on it.
They saw the plain walls in the changing rooms as a blank canvas to motivate and inspire the players before every game.
A team of 10 club volunteers got to work painting a silhouette mural onto the walls, showing a junior football player progressing into adulthood, while in different stages of taking a shot on goal.
Trustee and building fund coordinator, Keith Hollingworth, picked up the paint from the Dulux Decorator Centre on Leeds Road, Huddersfield, after nominating the project online.
Keith said: “We are really proud of our new building and the paint Dulux donated has helped us inject the club’s personality into it.
“Our footballer mural shows the different stages of a player’s life, so it will resonate with all our members from the junior team upwards.
“We hope it puts a smile on their faces before every game.”
Paul Browne, Dulux Decorator Centre store manager, said: “We are really impressed with the paintwork done by the volunteers at Hade Edge FC.
“We like to help local organisations wherever we can. The mural is a simple way to motivate players, showing them how their skills can grow and progress along with them.
“We hope lots of generations of footballers enjoy it for years to come.”
