A girls football team are kicking off their new sponsorship deal with the Beacon Shopping Centre in North Shields.

The centre has provided shirts for two teams in the North Shields Juniors AFC this season.

Both the Under-14 and the Under-11 girls teams will be wearing strips with the Beacon Centre logo.

Andy Laurie, girls football co-ordinator for the Club, said, “We are delighted to have the backing of the shopping centre, and especially in view of the fact that the sponsorship was for two teams, which both needed new strips.

“We have a lot of teams to provide for across the age groups, so this is great news for us.”

Beacon Centre manager Chris Wilson said: “The north east has always been big on football and our local club leads the way in bringing youngsters into the sport.

“The Beacon Centre fully supports the work that the club does within our community in North Shields, and we wish both girls’ teams every success for the rest of the season.”
