WHEN grassroots football is allowed to return again following the Covid-19 lockdown, Whittle Hall JFC under sevens Comets will have a new kit to play in.

The new playing kits have been supplied and sponsored by Warrington-based McQuillan Insurance Brokers.

"We are delighted to be supporting Whittle Hall JFC by sponsoring the under 7's children's kits," McQuillan managing director Elliot McQuillan said.

"Now more than ever we felt it was important to contribute to our community and support a local grassroots football club and their young players.

"We wish the club and the players the best of luck for the season ahead."

Dave Smith, chair of Whittle Hall JFC, added: "As a grassroots club, we are very grateful and appreciative of the support from McQuillan Insurance Brokers Ltd for their sponsorship to help purchase a football strip for U7 Comets team.

"The kindness in such difficult times will be a big boost for those young players who have only just started their footballing journey."
