LOCAL COMPANIES SUPPORT JUNIOR FOOTBALLERS
Companies in Selkirk met in generous collaboration at the weekend, pulling together for a photoshoot held at their Yarrow ground, to show off the newly sponsored team strips and rain jackets for the forthcoming season of the Selkirk Football Club Junior Team. Over 80 players, aged 4 -16 play at Yarrow Park and depend on sponsorship for their survival.
At a photo opportunity organised by the Chairman of the Selkirk Junior Football Club, Ian Stephen, to thank all the sponsors he said, “We are really grateful for the generosity of many local companies without whose support the team would simply not be here.”
The junior players are grouped by the year they were born and their football strips were sponsored by local companies as follows: 2009 – The Rotary Club of Selkirk; 2008 - RP Adam, Selkirk; 2007 – Mister Singh’s Indian takeaway, Galashiels; 2006 Brown and Muir, Selkirk; 2005 - Bankend Services, Selkirk. Waterproof rains jackets were sponsored by Matt Fuels, Ozkan’s Grill, Game and Country, and J & D Kerr. JGM Services sponsored the football strips for the newly formed under 14 Youth Team.
Meeting weekly, on Saturday mornings for training and games the juniors begin their season in September. The youth team play on a Sunday morning in the Scottish Borders Junior Football Association League.
Ian Clark, head coach for the club, highlighted that they are still looking for players, born in 2005, to play on a Sunday morning youth team, and would also be grateful to hear from any local sponsors willing to contribute to the sponsorship as they are in need of £1,800 to supply all players with branded track suits.
The Selkirk Junior Football Club depends completely on local financial support and is known for producing some good quality players.
