A team of youngsters in Ashbourne are to benefit from the support of their local Specsavers for the coming year.

Sponsored kit

Specsavers on Victoria Square has already provided full branded kit to the Ashbourne Aztecs’ U12 youth team, as well as offering ongoing support throughout the year.

A word from the store director 

‘We’re delighted to be sponsoring the U12 team,’ said Ashbourne store director, Andrew Wells. ‘‘It’s important to us that we give back to our local community, and sport is such a positive thing for children to help develop team spirit and a healthy lifestyle.

‘Eyecare is an important part of this, and we recommend that children have tests every two years from the age of three, to ensure that poor eyesight does not hold them back.’

The Ashbourne Aztecs are a thriving junior football club and are affiliated to the Football Association. Playing in a range of regional leagues, the club currently boasts 255 members in a number of teams, from Under 7's to Under 18's for both girls and boys.
