Cumnock Juniors 2016s are off to a flying start in their sporting careers after landing yet another sponsorship, this time from a local business owner who is keen to see grassroots football progress.

Laura Nisbet, from MB Balloons, has kindly purchased new track tops for the young players to wear to training sessions and matches.

And they are not the only team to benefit from some stylish support. This weekend, Cumnock juniors 2010s clubs took to the pitch in style after winning a competition with Ronseal to receive a brand-new kit for the team.

The 2010s youngsters were one of 100 junior teams chosen to receive a new strip designed and printed specifically for them, with the team logo on it.

It comes after a tough year for grassroots sport and DIY giant Ronseal and – the UK’s number one team wear specialist – have teamed up to help local clubs get back on their feet.

Speaking about the initiative, Jane Ryder, Ronseal’s European Marketing Director, said: “We know how much sport means to young people, especially during this difficult year.

“Players have really missed out on training and taking part in live matches, but it looks like they’re finally getting back out on the pitch.”

Ronseal have provided the club with £500 worth of new kit, including everything from shirts and shorts, to socks and equipment – all complete with the team and Ronseal logo.

The young players debuted the smart new look with pride when they took to the training ground this month.

Jane added: “We hope we can help them enjoy a great season and produce some sporting stars of the future.”
