Tong Garden Centre helps junior football team look the part

by | Oct 8, 2018 | Independents, News | 0 comments

Tong Garden Centre has made its mark on a talented junior football team by sponsoring its kit.
The garden centre is supporting Rothwell Juniors Under-14s, who play in Division One of the Garforth League.
Tong’s plant buyer, Steve Smith said: “We are always enthusiastic about supporting the local community. It’s a pleasure to help the youngsters who are taking part in sport in this way.
“They are a very talented group. We’re looking forward to seeing how they progress as a team.
“We hope that they enjoy wearing their new kit and wish them every success for this season.”
The successful team have won the league several times from the age of six. They’ve been League Cup and District Cup winners and played in last season’s District Cup Final at Leeds United’s Stadium.
They have also won Football Festivals at Butlins Skegness, which earned them a place in the grand final at the prestigious St Georges Park.

Thanks Tong

Coaches Mari de Laat and Darren Falk are very grateful to the team at Tong for their generous support.
Mari said: “Rothwell Juniors is a F.A. Chartered Standard Club and is well-known in the South Leeds area in the world of football. It’s important that the team’s appearance matches the high standard of their football. This has been made possible thanks to Tong.
“On behalf of the boys and the parents, we’d like to say a big thank you to Tong Garden Centre for sponsoring our kit.”
Rothwell Juniors FC was founded in 1976 and is based at Woodlesford, Leeds.
Tong Garden Centre is one of Yorkshire’s biggest garden centres with 110,000 square feet of retail space and parking for up to 1,000 cars.
