Isle of Man Post Office is sponsoring the Laxey AFC Juniors football kits for the coming season.
The Post Office’s sponsorship committee was approached by the club offering it the opportunity to support approximately 20 under 5s players’ football shirts which are now emblazoned with the Post Office’s logo.
Sarah Read, chairman of Isle of Man Post Office’s sponsorship committee said: ‘We were delighted to support Laxey AFC under 5s and take up the opportunity to promote our brand with a team in the local community.
‘The sponsorship of the kits will be valuable I’m sure. The sponsorship committee aims to support a variety of local initiatives throughout the year and we are always keen to hear from individuals and organisations looking for support which we may be able to help with.’
Peter Kinnish, Laxey AFC’s director of football and juniors coordinator, said: ‘You only needed to see the lads’ faces when they got their new kit and were then allowed to wear them on Saturday morning.
‘The lads were over the moon and so were the parents. The Isle of Man Post Office logo on the front of the shirts looks smart. Laxey AFC wishes to thank the Isle of Man Post Office for sponsoring their Under 5s.
‘It is a winner for Laxey AFC and a winner for Isle of Man Post Office. I think they look great as well.’
