Sporting youngsters from Ashcott have taken to the football pitch in style with a brand new kit after securing sponsorship from Specsavers. 

The Ashcott Football Club under 11s team has received support from the High Street Specsavers store in Street, and looked the part in their colourful kit as they kicked off the season with their first match on Saturday 24 September. 

Talented young footballers

‘It’s a pleasure to sponsor the team,’ store director Colin Shearer commented. ’They are a talented group of young footballers and a great example to other children in the local area to get outside and get involved in sports.’

The 15-strong team play against other teams in the area every weekend, and are part of the Yeovil & District Mini Football League.

Team Manager, Jarrad Cave, is very appreciative of the support: ‘The squad love their brand new kit and feel proud to be representing the club, as well as Specsavers, on the pitch. The new sponsorship has had a great affect on them and I’m sure will spur them on this season.’

Colin added: ‘The whole team here at Specsavers Street are big supporters, and we wish the team the best of luck in the rest of this season.’
