Under 9s football team receive brand new kits from Redrow

Redrow Southwest has donated new kits to a boys' football team at Leckhampton Rovers in Cheltenham.

Their brand new kits have come as the under 9s team prepare for their first official season playing competitive matches.

The grassroots football club is made up of more than 40 teams across 10 different age groups. The inclusive and diverse club boasts the largest boys' and girls' club in town and is supported by an army of volunteers, who deliver training and coordinate matches and travel for all their players.

Alex Bentley, the team's manager, said: "We are over the moon with our new football kits and the boys can't wait to get out and start the new competitive season in their striking kits!"

The donation, which includes shirts and shorts, is donated as part of Redrow's commitment to supporting the development of young talent within local communities.

With the U9s having played together for three years, they will now have the chance to play in a professional-looking kit, with the aim of boosting confidence and developing their love of the game.

Fiona Fullilove, Redrow's area sales manager, said: "We're delighted to see that the boys are loving their new kits as much as we do! Hopefully, they'll see some big wins as they shine in these eye-catching kits."

The club recently set up home at a local park, after securing initial funding for a new clubhouse and improved pitch drainage.
