FOOTBALLERS at The Sixth Form College, Solihull have received a new football kit courtesy of Britain’s largest sports charity, The Football Foundation.
The kit worth £400 was given to the team as part of the foundation’s new Junior Kit Scheme.
This provides football kits to teams across the UK and is fronted by Arsenal and England’s Theo Walcott who says: “I know how important it is for young players to feel they are wearing the best kit when running out onto the pitch. The JKS is a great opportunity to get free kits from the Foundation, which I wear in the Premier League.”
The foundation provides more than £1 million worth of kit and football equipment to junior clubs and schools, making sure that all players have the best possible start to a football game. Items include a full strip, training bibs and kit bags.
The Sixth Form College are extremely grateful for the Foundations generous donation:
“We would like to thank the Football Foundation for the new kit,” said Martyn Phillips, the college’s sports coordinator.
“It comes on the back of a successful year in which we won the league and cup double. We are confident the new kit will drive the players to even greater success in the 2009/2010 season!”
