Bolton Wanderers Football Club, in partnership with the University of Bolton and official kit supplier Macron, has launched a unique scheme for local grassroots junior football teams to receive a complete football strip free of charge...
The ‘Bolton Wanderers Grassroots Gift of Kit’ initiative will see the Club donate a full set of kits to over 300 grassroots junior football teams in the Bolton area.
Each kit, which will be available in Macron teamwear colours, will also feature the University of Bolton logo on the centre of the shirts.
Bolton Wanderers captain, David Wheater, who will act as ambassador for the scheme, said: “Bolton Wanderers is very much a football club which is at the heart of our community.
“Every single footballer in this country has been involved in grassroots football when they were younger and we all realise the importance of junior football clubs.”
The kits will be available for teams aged from under 7s to under 11s and will also include a goalkeeper’s kit and some additional strips for substitutes.
Clubs who would like to be in with a chance of receiving the kits have been asked to register their interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with their contact details.
The successful teams will then have the option of attending a match at the University of Bolton Stadium where they will be presented with their kits and have a photograph taken on pitchside before the game.
