Union Athletic JFC celebrated after being awarded a brand new football kit by the Football Foundation, the UK's largest sports charity.

The new Nike kit worth £400 was awarded to the team as part of the Foundation's junior kit scheme.

This provides new strips and equipment to teams across the country and is fronted by Arsenal and England star Theo Walcott.

The Football Foundation provides £1m worth of kit and equipment vouchers to junior clubs and schools, ensuring young players of all abilities have the best possible start in the game.

Theo Walcott said: “I know how important it is for young players to feel they are wearing the beast kit when running out on the pitch.

“The JKS is a great opportunity to get free kits from the foundation which I wear in the Premier League.”
