Up and coming soccer stars at a football club have begun the new season in style thanks to a generous donation from Taylor Wimpey Norfolk.
The leading housebuilder, behind the Austin Field development of new homes in Old Catton, Norfolk, has sponsored two under-8s sides at Old Catton Football Club - providing brand new strips for the Pumas and the Tigers teams.
"We contacted Taylor Wimpey at their nearby Austin Field development of properties in Old Catton to ask if they would like to sponsor one of the sides at Old Catton FC," says team coach Martin Miller. "We were really pleased to get a call back saying they could do better than that - and were willing to support two of our teams!"
The under-8s coaches - who also include Rob Mayes, Peter Marron and Francois Souris - are delighted to have the leading housebuilder's financial support, while the players are excited to be wearing their brand new shirts.
"The kids can line up for all their matches in the new season with their heads held high because of the shiny new kits they have, courtesy of Taylor Wimpey," adds Martin. "Having such a high-profile sponsor really means a lot to the youngsters - they are all extremely grateful."
Stacy Dornan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey, says: "Old Catton FC makes a valuable contribution to community life for so many local youngsters, so we are delighted to support their efforts.
"Our Austin Field development of new homes for sale in Old Catton is just a short distance from the club's pitches, and in the future we hope the children there will join their local side and play an important part in its future."
Three-bedroom houses in Old Catton are currently available at Austin Field from £184,995 and four-bedroom homes from £214,995.
