Bideford AFC Youth’s U12 disability team have received new kit courtesy of McDonald’s.
Restaurant franchisee David Hunt has donated the kit through the McDonald’s and FA accredited Club Kit Scheme.
The U12 side is one of Bideford AFC Youth’s newest teams, and joined the Devon Ability Counts League for the 2017/18 season.
Mr Hunt, who is a keen supporter of grassroots football, said: “Bideford AFC Youth is a fantastic example of a grassroots club with a real community spirit.
“It’s important that we support local teams to help them create the best possible experience for young aspiring players.
“It’s great to see that the McDonald’s Accredited Kit Scheme is thriving again this year, as it’s a fantastic reward for grassroots clubs up and down the country – I wish the team all the best this season.”
Bideford AFC Youth Secretary Neil Blackburn said the kits were a big hit the club’s members.
He said:“At Bideford AFC Youth, we’re very grateful for the continued support of David and McDonald’s.
“The kits provided as part of the McDonald’s Kit Scheme are a big hit with our young players and playing in the same strip goes a long way in helping everyone feel like a team.”
