Dorchester FC's under 15's are now fully kitted out thanks to new local sponsorship.

Magna Housing Association has paid for a full strip for the young Magpies.

The side were desperately in need of the kit and their manager Craig Fournier told Wessex FM;  "Our old kit was starting to look really scruffy, but we were going to struggle to replace it."

"We like the team to look smart when they turn out for games so we were really pleased when Magna agreed to fund the new kit.  The lads take great pride in being part of the Magpies and having a strip that looks good really helps them to stay on top of their game."

"We are in the process of planning a trip to play Bayeux Youth in France next year, as Bayeux is twinned with Dorchester, The boys will be representing the UK looking very smart."

Dorchester Town Youth have just introduced a new recycling system for kits, with the age group of boys and girls ranging from 5 - 18 year olds, so the kits are handed down and are recycled for many years.

Craig added: "We are so pleased Magna has allowed us to buy a durable kit that can be passed down and will be used for many years."

David Aldwinckle, MHA director, said: "We are keen to support local groups that make a contribution to the community, particularly where young people are involved.  Being part of the Magpies is great for everyone involved and Magna is very pleased to be able to provide a new kit for the team."

"If there is anyone else out there who runs a community group they can get in touch with us and apply for sponsorship."

The Magpies is a group of boys aged 14 to 15.  They train twice a week and take part in the Dorset league which means travelling to matches across Dorset on Sundays.  The team relies almost entirely on the parents of players who give up their time and effort in coaching, managing teams, refereeing, fund raising activities and carrying out the organisational activities.
