A JUNIOR football team has thanked a business for its support ahead of the new season.

Oakworth Juniors under-11s Stingers side has received a £500 boost thanks to Richard Nicholson, owner of Bingley-based The Heating Company.

The money has gone towards a new playing kit for the team, bearing the company logo.

Rye Bailey, coach of the team, thanked the business for its support.

He said: “This money has gone towards a nice new strip, otherwise we would have been playing in an old kit.

“It’s the perfect support to get ahead of the season which starts this month (August).”

Oakworth Juniors runs 23 teams ranging from a tots team to under-15s. For more information about the club, call 07771 625485.
