Telford opticians show support for local football team
Sporting youngsters from a Telford football team will take to the pitch in style thanks to the continued sponsorship of Specsavers.
The Wrekin Tigers under 9s team recently met with staff to show off their brand new kit and to present store directors with their own matching kit to display in store as a thank you for their ongoing support.
‘It has been a pleasure to support the Telford Wrekin Tigers for the last two years,’ commented store director, Rizwaan Makda. ‘They are a talented group of young footballers and a great example to other children in the area to get involved with local sports teams.’
The team was formed in 2014, entering the Telford under 7s junior league. Two years on and the Wrekin Tigers have grown in size as well as age to enter the town’s under 9s league after a triumphant summer of competitive tournaments.
Proud to represent Specsavers
Team Manager, Russel Evans, said: ‘The squad love their brand new kit and feel proud to be representing the club, as well as Specsavers, on the pitch. Thank you so much to Specsavers in Telford for their continued sponsorship and support – we’re all looking forward to another great year.’
Rizwaan added: ‘We were delighted to receive a visit from the team – our staff are all big supporters! We wish the team all the best in the next season.’
