Football team get ready to tackle the season in brand new kits

A school football team will kick off their winter games in brand new kits thanks to a generous donation from Redrow Homes.

 The team, aged between seven and 11, are pupils at Ysgol Owen Jones primary school in Northop, Flintshire.

They recently purchased the brand new kits using a £350 donation from the housebuilder.

Headteacher Jamie Tennant said: “We just want to say a huge thank you to Redrow for the donation. We are delighted to have a local business sponsoring our school team.

“We’ve also managed to buy waterproof coats as well so they have a complete kit now. These things cost money and budgets are small so we are always grateful for sponsorship.”

The team will wear the kits when games are played at their school and when playing against other local schools.

Anita Williams, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “Redrow is proud to sponsor the young sportsmen at Ysgol Owen Jones, which is so close to the new homes we are building at Northop Park.

“More than just a housebuilder, we strive to get involved in the communities in which we build so we were more than happy to help the team with a donation for quality kits.

“We hope that the new look strips will act as a good luck charm for the team and wish them all continued success in the future.”

Award-winning Redrow Homes is building nearby at Northop Park, off Connahs Quay Road, where there are just three homes still for sale. The housebuilder also has homes for sale at Heathlands, off Church Road, Buckley.For more information visit
