Congratulations, Rothwell Juniors Under 14s!

We’re delighted that a football team who we supported with kit has brought a successful season to a close with a cup win.

Rothwell Juniors Under 14s lifted the Leeds District Cup after a tense final which saw the team beat White Rose All Stars from Heckmondwike by 4-1.

Our plant buyer, Steve Smith, who organised the sponsorship with our marketing manager Jo Dales, said: “We like to support the local community and it is a pleasure to help youngsters participate in sport.

“They are a very talented group of young footballers and it’s really great to see their hard work has resulted in a cup win. We wish them well for next season.”

No strangers to success, the team, many of who have played together since they were four years old, have won the league several times from the age of six, have been League Cup and District Cup winners and played in the 2017/18 season District Cup Final at Leeds United’s Elland Road Stadium.

Coaches Mari de Laat and Matthew Loyd are delighted with the team’s performance and the kit sponsorship. 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 and 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. The Under 14s play in Division One of the Garforth League.
