A local junior football club is on a high thanks to the support of Manning Stainton.
Every member of North East Leeds FC Aces and the development team, The Kings, recently received a brand new kit, kindly donated by the Oakwood branch of the area’s leading estate agent.
The 20 strong squad play in the Garforth Football Under 10’s League and their smart appearance has led to equally stylish performances on the pitch, including a 12 – 0 winning scoreline already notched up this season.
Manager and Football Development Officer, Ian Jones said the new kit would help them on the pitch.
He said: ‘The boys were thrilled to receive the new strip. They not only look the part when they run out, but they are turning in performances to match.
‘We can’t thank Manning Stainton enough. Without help from community minded local companies it is difficult to run junior football effectively.’
Helen Taylor, Branch Manager at the Oakwood branch of Manning Stainton says: ‘When the club approached us about buying a new kit we were pleased to help. These clubs play a vital role in the local community and this is our way of showing gratitude.
‘We are delighted they have made a good start to the season and we will continue to watch the results with interest.
“I am sure that just like the team at Manning Stainton, their dedication, enthusiasm and hard work will really pay off.’
Through its community fund, Manning Stainton supports over 50 local initiatives and groups every year.
Already in 2014 the firm has made donations of over £4,000 to different groups.
