Bucks get financial booster

LONG Buckby Football Club has received a financial boost.

TalkTalk, the home phone, broadband and mobile provider, will sponsor the club for the next 12 months.

The funding provided will be used towards lighting for evening practice which will enable junior teams to train at the club.

Currently junior teams often have to be taken to other grounds for their practice sessions.

Glenn Botterill, manager at Long Buckby Football Club, said: “We are delighted with the support from TalkTalk which will enable us to purchase lights allowing the junior teams to practise at our club rather than having to use other facilities.

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

Tristia Clarke, commercial director at TalkTalk, said they were proud to be supporting Long Buckby Football Club.

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