A VILLAGE football club have been given a welcome financial boost.

Talk Talk, the home phone, broadband and mobile provider, will provide new equipment for Weedon Football Club.

They will also sponsor their team kit for the next 12 months.

The new team kit was on display for the first time in the team’s match against Wollaston which they won 1-0.

The firm has also supported Weedon FC’s recent ‘Legends’ Match’ celebrating more than 40 years of football in the community.

Weedon Football Club is seen as an asset to the village priding themselves on bringing together people from the local community.

This year has been very successful for the club both on and off the pitch with the first team promoted and the reserves just missing out on promotion.

The club has also introduced three new youth teams – the first time in the team’s history – enabling even more youngsters to get involved with the sport.

Danny Chapman, manager of Weedon Football Club, said: “Our new kit with the TalkTalk branding is fantastic and I am very proud to see the Weedon Football Club looking so well turned-out.

“We are looking forward to this season with real enthusiasm and optimism.

“We would like to thank TalkTalk for all of their help and support which is helping us achieve our goals”

Tristia Clarke, commercial director at TalkTalk, said: they were proud to be supporting the village club.

“They are in the heart of the community and we wish them every success with their endeavours both on and off the field over the coming months”.
