Horsford Youth Football Club under 18s have been given the clothing by David Wilson Homes.

Chris Brown, the football club's communications officer and under 18s coach said he was thrilled with the new kit, which followed a similar donation last year.

Mr Brown said: 'Having sponsorship and support from David Wilson Homes has been crucial in allowing this team to run over the past two seasons. 'The club are incredibly grateful for the support of David Wilson Homes and hope to continue this partnership for the years to come.'

Jason Colmer, sales director at the firm, said he was delighted to be supporting the team.

Mr Colmer said: 'It is a pleasure to sponsor the Horsford Under 18s for the second year and look forward to hearing about their progress this season.

'As well as building quality homes, it is important that we support the local groups and services that exist in the communities close to our developments.'
