A junior football team in south Leeds will be kicking off the next season with some brand new kits thanks to a local housebuilder.

Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire has donated £500 towards the cost of new kits for the Rothwell Juniors under 10s Reds football club.

The team’s head coach Steve Hart said: “We rely solely on the support of parents and companies such as Taylor Wimpey, so this donation is very warmly received by everyone at the club.

“The players are all very excited that they look like proper footballers, and this really does show in their performance and attitude on and off the pitch.”

The vast majority of the teams at the club, on Fleet Lane, are coached by parents who have achieved their FA coaching badges.

Anne Bagshaw, sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey Yorkshire, adds: “We’re only too happy to be offering our support and wish the U10s Reds team every success for the forthcoming season.”
