Football stars of the future from Wisbech St Mary are hoping to hit the net in their new kit.

The village’s under-7 side have been kitted out thanks to local McDonald’s franchisee, Matt Jarrett and the McDonald’s and FA Kit Scheme.

The local youngsters invited Matt to Beechings Close to unveil their new purple strip, and he said: “Wisbech St Mary is an excellent example of a grassroots club which has a real community spirit.

“The kit that we have supplied them with is fantastic and the kit scheme is something that McDonald’s is incredibly proud to be able to roll out to clubs all over the country.”

Martin Holmes, from Wisbech St Mary, said: “We’re hugely grateful to McDonald’s for donating a new kit for our under-7s 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.”
