Spartans Youth FC U10s are sporting a new football strip as part of the new McDonalds and FA Charter Standard kit scheme.
The new community programme run in partnership with The FA and their official kit supplier Nike, enables all 4,600 FA Charter Standard clubs with a junior team in England the chance to order a new strip every year for the next four seasons.
Spokesman for Spartans Youth, Eamonn Sylvester, believes the donation will allow the Hounslow club to divert precious funds to other areas which might otherwise have gone without.
He said: “We’re hugely grateful to McDonald’s for donating a new kit for our U10s team.
“An average team strip costs around £500 per season, so this really is a huge saving for us and means we can spend the money on other areas of the club that need it.
“The kids are all really excited about wearing their new strip. It’s already helped to create a sense of unity and team spirit and I’m sure this will go a long way towards helping us to have a successful season.”
The kit was delivered to Spartans by Atul Pathak, owner of 20 McDonalds restaurants across London.
He added: “Grassroots football clubs such as Spartans Youth FC are vital for communities, as they provide young people with the opportunity to get involved in football and feel part of a team.
It’s important that businesses like McDonald’s support them and help to create the best possible experience for young aspiring footballers.”
