The Shirehampton Colts Under 15 football team have stepped out in new kit thanks to their recent sponsorship from local technology provider, Chorus.
The community football club has over 270 players between 6 and 18 years, providing children across all ages the ability to enjoy football thanks to the dedication of the clubs’ volunteer coaches and committee members. While the club is supported by parent funding, volunteering and fundraising, the cost of training equipment and football kit can easily run into the thousands.
One of the clubs’ coaches, Simon Wright, who has coached the Under 15 team since they were six years old, recently reached out online to seek sponsorship. The U15’s were in their third year of their kit, and with a recent signing of one of their team members to Bristol City, Simon wanted to give the team the kit they deserved.
