Young football players have top notch new togs thanks to a global tissue maker.
The youngsters, with Elton Youth’s Under 9s football team, will be scoring in style thanks to their supporters at Flintshire firm SCA, a world wide company making everything from toilet paper to tissues.
The firm’s Oakenholt mill provided £500 for the players to be kitted out with a new away strip for their matches in the Chester Youth League.
The support for the 15-strong squad, which includes four girls, came through local resident Colin Willoughby, a machine operator at SCA and father of one of the club’s under-12s players.
The team’s manager Colin Bennett said: “The players have had to wear hand-me-down kits for their away strip until now so they’re really made up with having a new one of their own.
“Money’s always tight because we like to keep the charges down so everyone has the chance to take part.
“The support from SCA has been absolutely superb.”
SCA’s Oakenholt mill produces toilet and facial tissue and paper towels for the UK.
Site manager Jim Lang said the company had been pleased to support the team.
“It’s great to see such enthusiasm for football among the boys and girls at Elton and we hope the new strip will help bring them success this season,” he added.
Colin was on hand to present the new football kit to U9s team captain Reece Ellams with coach Mitchell Jarvis and manager Colin Bennett looking on.
