JUNIOR footballers at an award-winning club in Highworth are ready to mount a promotion push thanks to a stylish new kit donated by leading house builder Taylor Wimpey.
Youngsters in the Highworth Town Junior U11 ‘J’ side will be wearing the smart new shirts this season thanks to a £500 sponsorship deal with the team behind the sought-after Heyworth Heights development in the town.
Highworth Town’s juniors' successful youth system now boasts a total of 29 junior teams from U7s to U17s and has seen them win a top regional award for community involvement from the FA.
Commercial manager David Gunn said: “As a club we have grown very quickly and it’s great to have the support of local companies to help us continue our development and provide a good standard of football for hundreds of local youngsters."
Darren McCormack, regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey, said: “We are delighted to be able to help support the community and footballing success story that is Highworth Town. They provide a wonderful service for families in the area and we wish them well for the season ahead."
