HOME-shopping giant Damart – whose warehousing facility is at Steeton – is supporting the village football team.

It has announced a sponsorship deal with Steeton AFC, which runs two senior and two junior teams.

Club manager Roy Mason said: "As we are looking to progress up the football pyramid, sponsorship and the backing of the community is crucial to keeping us going.

"We're delighted Damart will be supporting us. This sponsorship agreement will provide enormous help and is appreciated by everyone connected with the club."

The company is also renewing its backing of Bradford Crown Green Bowls Association and the Yorkshire County Green Bowling Association.

Ben Phillips, head of e-commerce at Damart, said: "With more than 640 staff at our sites in Steeton and Bingley, it is important to all of us to support the community in which we work and live.

"We wish all the teams the best of luck and will be following their progress with interest."
