A Ripley youth football team is celebrating after netting a new sponsor for the coming season.
Local bus company, Yourbus, is proudly supporting the Ripley Academy’s year 11 football team.
The new sponsorship deal ensures the team will be wearing a high quality strip for the season ahead.
The year 11 team at the Ripley Academy are the reigning Key Stage 4 boys Amber Valley Area and County futsal champions.
As a result of this they will represent the county at the regional finals which are set to be staged later this year.
The new kit will be used by the team during that event, as well as for league games and will also be worn by the new Amber Valley Sixth Form team.
Sarah Taylor, Yourbus Marketing Manager, said: “We recognise that local sports teams are a hugely positive way of bringing people together in the communities that we serve.
“We hope that with our support they can continue for generations to come.
“We’re delighted to be able to contribute to local sports teams in this way.
“We hope our support will help towards their success.”
The Academy’s Year 11 team manager, Scott Kingsland said: “The team deserve a colossal amount of praise this season.
“The team is thrilled at the prospect of having a newly sponsored kit.
“We look forward to wearing it with pride.”
