A village football team has a new strip thanks to a sponsorship deal with an estate agent.

Grantham estate agents Harrison Murray have taken their team colours from the branch window onto the sports field to provide the players of Caythorpe Sports and Social Football Club with a new blue and yellow kit.

The strip was presented to the team before their recent game against league leaders Nobody Inn Reserves, which Caythorpe won 1-0.

The club has been operating successfully for eight years and the team is run jointly by managers Richard Welby and Garon Harrison.

Richard said: “Clubs are run on a very tight budget and, with running costs rising each year, it is very hard to try and save for additional equipment. The kit is the costliest item and clubs often have to search and work hard to get this sponsored by a company, or alternatively carry on wearing a worn kit.

“We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found a generous sponsor in Harrison Murray, they could not have been more helpful or willing to help our club. We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone at Harrison Murray Estate Agents Grantham.”

Estate agency manager for Harrison Murray, Sarah Monteith, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer this sponsorship deal to the football club.

“As a business at the heart of the community ourselves, Harrison Murray values the importance of clubs, groups and organisations which bring local people together.”
