A newly formed amateur football team will kick off next season in a brand new kit, thanks to the support of Manning Stainton.

Joeanne Higgins, a Sales Negotiator at the Morley branch of the area’s leading estate agent, says the company was more than happy to help Morley AFC as they prepare for life in Division 6 of the Yorkshire Amateur League. ‘When the call came to see if we could help we had absolutely no hesitation in saying yes’, says Joeanne. ‘We love getting involved with community based initiatives and we wish the lads all the best for the forthcoming season. We will be watching their progress with interest.’

Team manager Declan Parnell adds: ‘As a newly formed team there is so much to organise, most of which costs money. Thanks to the generosity of Manning Stainton our playing strip is now one less thing for us to worry about!’

Morley AFC is one of many teams, schools and other worthwhile organisations that Manning Stainton actively supports through its corporate social responsibility programme which in 2015 made donations totalling over £65,000. Other recent beneficiaries included Morley Victoria Primary School who received money for an external defibrillator.

The Morley branch of Manning Stainton is open 7 days a week and the team is ready to take customer calls from 8am-8pm every day. It is one of 19 Residential Sales and Lettings offices across West and North Yorkshire.

In 2015 the firm was named the ‘Best Medium Estate Agency in the North of England’ at The Sunday Times Estate Agency of the Year Awards and is a top 5 ranked agent on allAgents.co.uk, the UK’s largest independent customer reviewwebsite for estate and letting agents.
