The Specsavers Gorseinon team has renewed its sponsorship of a local football team ahead of another action-packed season.

A proud affiliation

For the sixth year, the Specsavers store has sponsored the Pontarddulais under 14’s junior football team, which will see the Specsavers’ logo featuring on their hoodies and kits.

Lab technician, Carl Thomas, is particularly pleased with the renewed sponsorship as he has coached the squad for the last six years.

He says: ‘It’s been great seeing the team grow during my time with them. The store’s sponsorship has helped support the team’s development, on and off the pitch.

The skills the players are learning, such as teamwork and decision-making, will benefit them later in life.’

Not just a game

Sarah Thomas, optometrist director, says: ‘We’re proud to champion the importance of good health in our community, whether that be eye health or otherwise.

'Sport is a great way for young people to learn life-long skills as well as keep fit, which is why we’ve lent our support to the Pontarddulais football team again this year.’
