Girls Football Team Gets New Home And Away Kit

An Alton based financial services company has backed grass roots junior football by sponsoring an under-14s girls team.

Beta Commercial Finance has bought new home and away kits for Leek Town Lightning who play in League One of the Staffordshire League.

Managing director Tom Wilkinson, said: “I know the team manager, Richard Weaver, well, as he’s amongst my oldest friends, and the enthusiasm from the team and the volunteer coaches shines through.

“We’ve bought both home and away kits for the team and we are proud to have our logo on the front, promoting junior football in our area.

“Leek Town Lightning have only been going for around three years but secured promotion to Division One in 2019 and cemented that position with a strong fifth place finish last year.

“They kicked off the new season, sporting their new kit, with a win away to Stone Dominoes.”
