Youngsters having a ball thanks to Fairburn’s Eggs

Sep 29, 2020

A team of young local footballers is kicking off the new season in style thanks to community sponsorship from L J Fairburn and Son.

Players for Alford Town Football Club Under 13s, also known as the Robins, are now donning smart new red and yellow shirts for their matches emblazoned with the Fairburn’s logo. The local club, which is based just a few miles from Fairburn’s farm office, does great work in the community encouraging youngsters to take up sport and teaching them how to work as a team.

Daniel Fairburn said: “Physical exercise has always been important for kids but no more so than now. Lockdown was a frustrating time for young football lovers as they couldn’t kick a ball about with their mates and so it’s great to see outdoor team football back up and running, particularly in our local area. I’m delighted that we’ve been able to continue backing Alford Town FC with shirt sponsorship.”

Louise Woodhall from Alford Town FC said: “Our Robins have been really excited to show their new kit off and are raring to get back to competitive playing.  Thank you Fairburn’s for your continued support.”

Alford Town FC is currently looking for players for its under 13s mixed/boys team and under 14s girls team, as well as coaches to help out its younger teams. Coaches don’t necessarily need to have experience as long as they are keen to join in with Alford’s footballing community.
