‘Deserving’ football team offered new kit by funeral firm
12:40pm Tuesday 13th August 2013 in News
ONE lucky football team can win a new kit – thanks to a Hampshire funeral directors.
B Matthews funeral directors in Portsmouth Road, Woolston, will donate a full strip to a deserving side.
People are invited to nominate a football club they believe would benefit from the strip.
The competition is open to junior and adult league teams but youth clubs, organisations, school sides, and teams that play for fun can also enter.
The idea is the brainchild of funeral director Victoria Nethercott, who hopes people power will help the firm find the most deserving football squad in the area.
She said: “The contest is open to all sides within the Southampton area, and anyone can make a nomination.
“We are hoping to see mums and dads, grans and grandads, managers and club chairmen, and players and supporters all visit the branch to tell us why their team deserves a new strip for the season.”
Nominations can be made by visiting the B Matthews branch at 146 Portsmouth Road, Woolston, and completing an entry form.
Entries close on August 23.
