5:02pm Monday 14th October 2013 in Sport
CIRENCESTER TOWN FC has received a welcome financial boost from McDonald’s franchisee Paul Booth, who has funded the U11s' new home and away kit for the 2013/2014 season.
Sharon Olsen, manageress of Cirencester McDonald's, presented the new kit at The Arena, CTFC’s indoor facility last Friday.
Paul Booth, who owns seven restaurants in the area, established close links with the club four years ago.
Nick Dyer, CTFC U11s coach, said: “Paul has continually supported Ciren Town as a whole with equipment such as goals, goal nets, coaching aids, first aid kits etc and in particular the new kit for the current U11s.
"It's great to have such close links with our local McDonald's. They are a huge support to us and this kind of support is vital for us to be able to offer young players in the community a place to enjoy the game and develop their skills in a safe environment.”
Sir Geoff Hurst, McDonald’s Director of Football, said: “The McDonald’s Community Football Programme aims to improve the standard of the grass-roots game in communities across the UK.
"Paul Booth’s great commitment to supporting local clubs in the area like Cirencester Town is inspiring and really helps to make grass-roots flourish in the area.”
Booth said: “Ciren Town is a well established club who offer a lot to the local community. The standard of football that they teach to their members is outstanding and this donation is a reward for all of their hard work. I wish them the very best for the rest of the season. ”
McDonald’s is dedicated to supporting grassroots football. By 2014, McDonald’s has pledged to train a further 30,000 coaches, support more than 6,000 local clubs and 400,000 volunteers.
