  • > GRASSROOTS WINNERS - Syston Town U16's


Added 25 Jan 2017 by GFORCE

A girl’s football team in Leicestershire is celebrating after receiving a brand new kit worth £750 from a local sportswear company.

Syston Town girls U16 team, has received the football shirts, shorts and socks for each of their players courtesy of the GFORCE Grassroots Campaign, which aims to provide financial support to help local sports teams and clubs from across the region achieve their aspirations.

The team  added their own input into the design of the kit and opted to move away from the club’s usual amber and black colour scheme to pink and black in order to give the girl’s team its own identity.

Paul Kirk, coach of Syston Town girls U16, said: “We’d all like to say a massive thank you to GFORCE for the products we have received. Girl’s football doesn’t receive much in the way of funding and sponsorship as it all seems to go to boy’s teams so to receive this is so appreciated by the players, coaches and parents. The girls love the new identity they’ve helped to create and are extremely proud to wear the new kit.”

GFORCE Teamwear launched the campaign in 2016 to reinforce its commitment to grassroots sport by setting aside a £5,000 pot of money which organisations in the East Midlands could apply to for grants, with a maximum value of up to £750 per team or club.

Simon Ward, Sales Director at GFORCE, said: “We are delighted that the Syston Town girls U16’s are pleased with their new look. We think they look fantastic and are sure the kits will give them the edge on the playing field too!

“The GFORCE Grassroots campaign exists to reward the dedication, passion and success of sports teams and clubs from across the East Midlands just like the Syston Town. We wish them the very best for the future.”

GFORCE, based on London Road in Leicester, is a high performance sports brand offered by Gymphlex Ltd – member of a group of companies, also including Leicester-based uniform specialists Grahame Gardner Ltd.
