Botteginos sponsors team
THESE young footballers are raring to go for the new season after securing a new kit sponsor.
Botteginos have committed to kitting out the Emersons Green Junior Football Club boys team for the next two seasons, when they will play at Under 9s and then Under 10s level.
The boys play in the Hanham Minor League and, after a great 2018/19 season at Under 8 level, are expecting big things this coming season.
They have already played in their new kit at the annual Emersons Green club tournament on the Walkers Playing fields at the end of June.
Managers Mark Skidmore and Barry Greenslade, the boys and the parents welcomed the sponsorship deal from the Emersons Green restaurant, which is run by local businessmen Raf and Gino Botta.
Emersons Green JFC was established in 2014 to provide children in the area with football training, games and enjoyment.
From the 30 children who joined at its onset the club has grown considerably over the last five years and now has over 230 players registered.
Emersons Green JFC offers boys and girls the opportunity to play grass-roots football, from mini kickers soccer schools, to teach younger children from four upwards basic skills, to Under 15s.
