A word from our store director

Craig Selbie, store director for Specsavers Dalkeith, said: ‘It is an absolute pleasure to support Progressive Football Development Dalkeith Football Academy and gift them with new strips through the sponsorship.

‘Supporting sporting teams, especially within the local area, means a lot to Specsavers.

‘We hope the strips give them an extra spring in their step when playing in their future games and we wish the team all the best for the rest of the season.’

Scott Gibson, director and head of coaching, said: ‘We are really grateful for the support we have received from Specsavers Dalkeith, it’s great to see them supporting the local community.

‘We pride ourselves on bringing the community closer together and giving back to them, and Specsavers’ generosity is very much appreciated.

‘I know all the boys are extremely excited to be playing in brand new strips, they all train hard each week and play really well together as a team. We’re looking forward to a successful season, boosted by our fantastic new strips.’
