Does your junior football club need a brand-new strip?

Funding for junior clubs is often hard to come by, which is why, for the third year running, local promotional products and branded clothing specialist company Recognition Express has once again launched a competition in Cheshire for Under 16 teams to nominate their unsung heroes. The prize is a complete set of new football shirts, shorts and socks for the team’s 2019/2020 season in a design of their choosing.

Explained Alan Stones, director of Recognition Express Cheshire: “A brand new kit has a motivational effect on boys and girls playing in any football team, but as we learned during last year’s campaign it’s much harder for junior clubs to find sponsors and many parents can’t afford to pay out for new strips.  

“Every football club has an unsung hero, whether it's a player who always gives their all win, lose or draw; an ultra-dedicated coach whose commitment inspires and gets the best from the team; a dedicated parent or even the ever-present groundsman or tea lady, a football hero is someone who goes over and above for the club, long after the final whistle has been blown.

“We want to recognise the contribution these unsung heroes make to junior football teams and give something back to the community we serve. As specialists in recognition products, promotional items and branded clothing, it makes sense for us to combine donating a new team strip to a local junior football club whilst recognising an unsung hero.”

Anyone can nominate a junior football club hero. The competition is open to all under 16’s junior football clubs playing in Cheshire. To enter visit and complete the simple entry form.

The competition closes on Sunday 7 April 2019 and the winner will be announced by Monday 15 April 2019.
