An optician in Ripon has pledged its support to a local football team to give them a boost ahead of the new season.

Ripon City Panthers JFC

As an official sponsor of Ripon City Panthers JFC, the Specsavers store in Ripon has provided the under 15s boys team with all new football kits and sports water bottles ahead of the new season.

Store director, Caroline Sullivan, says: ‘We’re really pleased to be able to sponsor the Ripon City Panthers under 15s once again.

“It’s so important to us to support children in our community, and especially when we’re encouraging them to continue to be fit and active.

"Everyone in the team is excited for the season getting underway and we’ll be putting in an appearance at their next match to cheer the team to victory." 

Community run club

The Panthers are an FA Charter Standard Community club, and is run entirely by volunteers.

The club provides education through football for girls and boys from five to 18 years.
