Young footballers are celebrating in a brand new kit after picking up a new supporter.
The Under-9 team Hyde Park Knights, based in Doncaster, have been sponsored by affordable housing company Lovell and have a smart new football strip to prove it.
Lovell is building a £13m housing development at Lincoln Gardens, near to where the young team trains.
Nathan Teale, manager of Hyde Park Knights, said: “We are off to a great start this season and it is brilliant to see the lads train so hard together.
“The players are united as a team and the sponsorship and new kit from Lovell has only enhanced that. With our new match day kits, we are ready to go out there and do our best this year!”
Hyde Park Knights are in Division A of the Doncaster and District Junior Sunday Football League. Many of the team’s players live close to the new development at Lincoln Gardens.
Noel Adams, regional director at Lovell said: “We are keen to invest in the communities in which we work, as building homes is about more than bricks and mortar. As an organisation we look to go that extra mile and engage with the people around us.
“We were delighted to sponsor the local football team, especially knowing it is a key asset for young people within the community.
“Hopefully we may see youngsters from our new homes at Lincoln Gardens becoming future stars with the Hyde Park Knights. We wish the lads all the best this season, and I’m sure they will be bringing home a trophy at the end.”
