CHIPPING Football Club have received a welcome sponsorship boost.

The club would like to show their gratitude for the continued support of MGF Ltd, and in particular Michael O’Hara, for providing the funds to purchase brand new training wear for the whole squad, which will benefit both the winter league and summer league teams.

Winter league manager Matt Ireland said: “We are incredibly grateful for Michael’s continuous support, even through what have been tough times recently for many businesses.

“This is the second time he and MGF have agreed to sponsor our club jackets, and they look great, giving the right impression of our club on match days.

“It’s great for the club to have such support from a successful local business.”

Chipping have not got off to the start they expected this season in the Preston and District League, and have had trouble picking up points both home and away against some strong opposition.

The club hold training sessions on the Chipping astroturf at 8 p.m. every Tuesday – with anyone welcome to attend.
