Marlborough Youth Football Club scores sponsorship from opticians
Opticians Haine & Smith have sponsored the new kit of Marlborough Youth Football Club’s U12 Barbarians – and if you can’t see them coming in their bright orange shirts, shorts and socks, you really should get an eye test.
They will certainly look the part when they start the new season in the North Wilts Youth League next week, but sponsors and parents got a sneak preview of the kit when the Barbarians played a friendly against Calne at Salisbury Road Recreation Ground on Saturday, which they won 6-3.
Marlborough Youth Football Club was formed in 2009, and after rapid expansion was voted Wiltshire Sports Club of the Year 2014.
The club's ethos is Football For All offering a wide range of football opportunities in a positive controlled environment for players of all ages and abilities. The club runs boys/girls and mixed teams, and currently has around 240 players across the age groups.
Janet Hartwell, clerk to the trustees of the Haine & Smith Charitable Trust said: “As local independent opticians, Haine & Smith have always enjoyed supporting the community and we are particularly keen to encourage youth sport, owing to the link between keeping fit and active, and eye health. We hope the team will enjoy many wins in their new kit.”
