Motor dealer steps in with new football strips for top of the league team

A set of new football strips are bringing good luck to a team of ambitious youngsters, who are currently top of the league.

South Shields Football Club’s under 8s ‘Blues’ team has been kitted out in new strips for the 2016/2017 season thanks to Jennings Ford Direct, part of the multi-award winning Jennings Motor Group.

Winning every game since the start of the season, has placed the five-a-side team, which plays in the Russell Foster Youth Leagues, at the top of the under 8s league table.

The youngsters are hoping the strips will continue to bring good fortune throughout the remainder of the football season.

Alisha Henry, South Shields FC’s commercial manager, said: “We are delighted that Jennings Ford Direct has decided to kit out one of our junior sides.

“This further demonstrates the commitment they have to not just the football club, but to junior football and football in the area, too.

“The team has done so well so far this season and hopefully that will continue.

“The most important thing, though, is that they continue to enjoy their football, and the security the kit sponsorship gives them will hopefully allow them to do that.” 

Jamie Steel, sales controller at the South Tyneside-based dealership paid a special visit to the Club at Mariners Park, to meet the team and see the youngsters training in their new strips, he said:

“It’s great to see so much enthusiasm and dedication at such a young age.  We are absolutely delighted the team is doing so well and that the strips have boosted morale, which is clearly reflected in their performance on the pitch.  We would like to wish both the team and the Club continued success in the future.”

Part of a new partnership with the Club, the Newcastle Road-based motor dealership in South Shields has also sponsored the Club’s first-team kit with the company’s branding on the back of the shirts.

Jennings Ford Direct sells quality approved used vehicles, which have been delivered direct from the manufacturer, in addition to offering a number of after sales facilities, including service, MOT and parts.
