The young footballers of an Ilkeston Town Under 11s team are taking to the pitch in style for the current and 2018-19 seasons after trentbarton sponsored their kit.
The Red Tigers’ new strip carries the branding of our ilkeston flyer buses – and is in the brand’s two shades of blue – after we backed the team with £450 of sponsorship.
The players will wear the trentbarton branded kit for their friendly fixtures and shield games.
Assistant manager Craig Sharpe said: “This sponsorship is a lifeline for us. We are self-funded and have to do lots of fundraising events to buy the equipment the teams need for training and playing.
“To get a company such as trentbarton to come along and pay for the kits in a two-year deal is a massive weight off our minds.
“For the players, having a good quality kit to play in makes them proud and feel part of the wider community. trentbarton is based just down the road so the boys can take pride in the support of such a highly visible local firm.”
Jordan Kemp, marketing managing, said: “It’s great to back these young players from such a community-focused club and we wish them every success this season and next. We hope to see Ilkeston flying.”
