A talented young football team has scored a sponsorship deal after being spotted by a local business owner.

Inspiring potential
Dereham under 9s football club will receive funding from Specsavers, after local store director, Kevin Osborne, saw the potential of the up and coming team. 

The backing of Specsavers means that the boys have now been provided with a brand new kit meaning that they are able to train throughout the week both indoors and out. 

Giving back to the community
Kevin, who has been sponsoring teams for the last seven years, explained why he wanted to get involved. He said: ‘Both the stores and I are always keen to endorse young people to give them the chance to achieve their goals as well as learning skills and having a reason to get out and about, which many young people take for granted these days. Any way that we are able to give back to a community that has been supporting our stores for the last 13 years is an honour.’

Specsavers are looking to support teams in and around the East Dereham and Fakenham areas for the upcoming season and throughout next year.
