Local sportswear firm gets behind golden boot and glove competitions

THE North Devon Gazette Football League’s leading goal scorers and goalkeepers will be recognised in a brand new competition being held this season.

Prizes for the Golden Boot will be awarded to the top two scorers for each of the league’s four divisions, while a Golden Gloves accolade will be awarded to the top three goalkeepers across the entire league.

The competition is being sponsored by MJM Sports Ltd, with cash prizes, football boots and trophies for the winning players.

Terry Schofield, managing director of MJM Sports, said: “It is a real delight to be putting something back into the local football that has supported our business for many years.

“I am sure that the Golden Boot and Gold Glove award will not only create an interest within the league but within the clubs themselves. I look forward to presenting the awards at the end of the season. Good luck to all.”

League secretary Mick Tattersall added: “The league would like to welcome its newest sponsor MJM Sports who will sponsor the Golden Boot and Glove for the current season.

“In today’s climate the league felt that by partnering with a local business that supplies football equipment and kits to some of our league clubs was the right way forward for this competition. We like to wish all clubs and players all the very best of luck in all competitions this season.”
