After their successful promotion to the Colchester and District A League, Frinton and Walton Youth Football Club Under 12’s’ new sponsors hope that their new football kit will inspire them to continue their previous seasons winning form.

Ellisons Solicitors, with offices in Frinton, Clacton, Colchester and Dovercourt, have sponsored the new shirts; local plumbing and heating company Heatec have funded the jackets.

Lee Pearce, Property Litigation partner with sponsor Ellisons and a local resident, was delighted to be able to support the team: “As a Firm, we believe in backing local community projects and the Firm’s close relationship with Colchester United makes supporting grass roots football such as the Frinton & Walton team particularly important. But at the moment…just a little worried that the Under 12s are holding back a bit, afraid to get the new kit dirty! But it was a great win against Coggeshall and so go for it boys – it will all come out in the wash!”

John Muckle, Manager of the Under 12’s, appreciates the local support. “It feels very professional playing in kit emblazoned with the logos of successful local businesses. The support from Heatec and Ellisons is much more than just financial and we believe it will make a difference to the morale and, hopefully, the performance of the team. The Club is very appreciative of all its sponsors and so thank you to all involved.”
