Holbeach United Youth FC’s youngest team received a much-needed sponsorship boost this season from Andy Molsom of Molsom & Associates Optometrists in Spalding.
The deal bought matchday waterproof tracksuits for the newly-formed under-7 team who play in the Fenland & District League.
Coach Shaun Harvey said: “We are very grateful to Andy for his generous sponsorship.
“It came at the right time to help keep the team warm and comfortable during matchday.
“It made the children feel really special and some even said that they now felt like a professional club.
“Without vital sponsorship, it is really difficult supplying kit and equipment for the team.
“We are continually fund-raising to help the children and welcome any financial help.”
Mr Molsom added: “It really is great to get involved with such a committed team as they start out.
“When I heard that they desperately needed some warm clothing for the winter, I felt I had to help.
“It’s important to see young children passionate to get outside and enjoy sport when so much of our life revolves around digital devices.
“It also consolidates the work we have done locally with schools to promote comfortable vision and healthy eyes to assist their learning.”
