Team scores a new football kit

NORTH Shields FC Girls under-15 squad has been donated a new set of strips.

Thanks to the generosity of Sean Heaney, a director of letting agents Paul Airey Ltd, the youngsters now have a professional kit.

Squad manager Peter Wilkinson said: “The new strips that Paul Airey has kindly funded have had a positive impact on the girls.

“Sponsorship helps us as it releases money that we raise to be spent on the girls’ development and to help pay for them to participate in tournaments.”

Sean said: “We are proud to be the official sponsor of the North Shields FC Girls’ Under-15 football team and I am sure they will get a lot of good use out of the strips.

“As a company we like to put something back into the community and this donation allows us to help with the progress of the team.”
