Ipswich solicitors Kerseys has come to the rescue of Martlesham Youth Football Club (MYFC) by sponsoring the team's new football kit.
The firm has kitted out the Lightnings Under 11s, who play their home games at Martlesham Police headquarters, and needed a new kit after they moved from playing seven aside to nine aside – and grew out of their old kits!
Justin Boyd, accounts manager at Kerseys and has two sons, Owen and Jack, who play for Martlesham, said the team were delighted.
“It has already helped to boost the team’s morale and give them a new identity as they move up a level.
“The kit includes jerseys, shorts, socks and rain jackets, which the team have agreed to wear for the next two seasons. After that, the kits will probably be passed down to the younger MYFC teams.”
MYFC has at least one team in every age group from U6s to U16s and they are traditionally named after planes which the RAF used to fly from Martlesham.
