Alnwick's young sporting stars have been kitted out by the town’s eyecare and hearing experts.

Alnwick Rugby Football Club’s under 13s and under 15s girls’ squads, and under 11s boys’ team received new kit courtesy of Specsavers Opticians & Audiologists on Bondgate.

More about the donation

The four-figure investment from the store’s director Grant Welsh covered the costs of the purchase of 60 rugby tops, which players debuted against Whitley Bay Rockliffe.

Grant said: ‘Since opening our doors here in Bondgate last year, we’ve been looking for opportunities to show our support for our local community.

‘Alnwick Rugby Football Club offers wonderful opportunities for children interested in the sport and we hope their new sponsored shirts become a lucky charm for them out on the pitch.’
