Junior football clubs in Worcester are being offered the chance to score a brand-new strip, courtesy of local business, Recognition Express.

For the fourth year running, Worcester-based Recognition Express has launched a competition for Under 16s teams to nominate their unsung hero and win a complete set of new football shirts, shorts and socks for the team’s 2019/2020 season.

Paul Boeck, director of Recognition Express Hereford and Worcester, said: “Our annual Unsung Heroes competition is a fantastic way to recognise those who support junior football clubs to ensure these young players reach their potential.

“Anyone who goes over and above for the club can be nominated; from coaches and caretakers to club secretaries and groundsmen, anyone whose selflessness and commitment allows girls and boys to enjoy football in a safe, friendly and welcoming environment.”

With club sponsorship hard to come by, along with the added expense for mums and dads, Recognition Express is delighted to offer one lucky team the chance to light up their next match in a new strip, in a design of their choosing."

Paul added: "As specialists in recognition products, promotional items and branded clothing, it makes sense for us to combine donating a new team strip to a local junior football club whilst recognising an unsung hero. It gives us the chance to recognise the contribution these unsung heroes make and give something back to the community we serve.”

Anyone can nominate a junior football club hero. The competition is open to all under 16s junior football clubs playing in Worcester. To enter visit https://www.recognition-express.com/hw/nominate-football-hero and complete the entry form. The competition closes on Sunday April 5 and the winner will be announced from Monday April 13.
