Deeping Rangers have announced a sponsorship deal linking the club and snooker legend Ronnie O’Sullivan.

‘The Rocket’, five-time world champion, has agreed to sponsor the Under-10 Clarets and will be providing new training jackets bearing his logo for the youngsters to wear.

O’Sullivan agreed to sponsorship of the team after hearing of Deeping’s commitment to youth football from a friend and work colleague of his manager Sonny Nath.

The U10 Clarets enjoyed a successful 2013/14 season, which is restricted under FA rules to two competitive events per season, winning the Northern Silver Trophy event and reaching the semi-finals of the Hereward Cup.
