Players of Leyland Albion Junior Football Club will be running out in a new team strip next season, thanks to The Co-operative Food store on Dunkirk Lane.

The store, which was officially re-opened after a £500,000 refit in March, has sponsored kit for the entire junior team.

Lee Thomas, Store Manager of the Dunkirk Lane Co-operative food store said: “The Co-operative is proud to play an important role in the life of this local community.

“We were thrilled when so many Leyland residents joined us for the official re-opening of our new-look store, and are delighted we can now give something back to the local area.

Des Newsham, vice chairman of Leyland Albion Juniors said: “Thanks to this generous donation, our youngsters will look as good as they play when they step out on to the pitch.

“Having a new team strip has really boosted their confidence.

“We would like to thank Lee and his team for thinking of us, the donation was most unexpected.

“It is refreshing to see a large retailer, such as The Co-operative, eager to participate in community life.”
