A young football team are celebrating both on and off the pitch after receiving a new football strip from Kier North Tyneside.

The Killingworth Young People’s Club Munich Under 13s football team received the donation after the team’s coach, Brian Porter, requested support from Kier.

Brian said: “The squad have a professional attitude towards the sport so I thought maybe Kier could help them look the part too.

“We are very grateful for Kier’s support, and are looking forward to the team developing further this season.”

The KYPC Munich U13 team, which consists of 18 youngsters from the local area, finished in third place in the North East Youth Development League last season. The club, which runs its own leagues, has been established for over 30 years.

Kier regional director Mike Furze said: “As a local employer, we are always keen to support good causes within the areas we work, as well as support groups and clubs that help to promote an active lifestyle for young people.

“The football team have had some great successes over the last couple of months and we hope to see big things from them this season.”
