A Welling under 14s football team has been boosted with a new set of kit.

Cray Valley FC received the new kit from the McDonald’s restaurant on Bellegrove Road, as part of the McDonald’s FA Charter Standard Kit Scheme.

The scheme enables all FA Charter Standard clubs with a junior team to order a new strip ever year for the next three seasons.

250,000 kits could potentially be provided nationwide.

Chris Spearing, Secretary of the Cray Valley FC under 14s, said: “We’re hugely grateful to McDonald’s for donating a new kit for our under 14s team. An average team strip costs around £500 per season, so this really is a huge saving for us and means we can spend the money on other areas of the club that need it.

“The kids absolutely love wearing their new strip. Having the kit has created fantastic unity and team spirit and has given the kids extra motivation to train and have a great season.”

Cray Valley FC is a thriving club whose youth teams for U14s and U15s give local teenagers the chance to get involved in football. The club aims to provide its players with the opportunity to realise their full potential and improve their skills.

Greg Abbott owns and operates the McDonald’s restaurant on Bellegrove Road. He said: “Grassroots clubs such as Cray Valley FC invest an incredible amount of time providing their local communities with footballing opportunities.

“It’s important that businesses like McDonald’s support clubs such as Cray Valley FC as it means they can use the money saved by the kit and equipment to invest in training more coaches, improving facilities and reducing the costs passed onto players and their parents”
