A LANGHO football club is celebrating the arrival of its new kit, courtesy of Ribble Valley businessman John Croft.

The under-13 teams sported the strips, which were presented by John, Managing Director of Croft Conservatories to Langho chairman Ray Grimshaw.

The maroon and blue strip got its first public outing on Sunday (October 9th) – the team’s first game of the season – after two games were cancelled due to bad weather.

Steve Clarke, manager of the junior team (Maroons), said: “Sponsorship from local business is absolutely vital for local clubs like ours.

“The lads loved the new strip and there was a real sense of pride when they put them on for the first time.”

John added: “We were very happy to offer our support and hope the kit brings the team lots of luck!”
