‘It’s great to be involved with the biggest amateur football club in the country and to be helping grassroots sport in this way.  We admire the Club and its ethos around inclusivity, development and enjoyment and so to have the opportunity to work with them is fantastic. 


‘We’ve been following the Rondos and Raptors closely this season and are happy to see that their eyes have been on the ball! We wish them all the best for the forthcoming matches.’


Phil Traquair, Vice Chair, West Bridgford Colts FC adds, ‘With more than 120 teams in the club, it can be challenging to find kit sponsorship from local businesses, so we were delighted that a company with such a strong brand as Specsavers stepped up and offered to buy new kits for this season. The logo looks great on the shirts and the lads look very smart when they go on to the field.


‘It’s also looking promising that in this first season of sponsorship, that both teams are very much in contention to win a U14 league trophy come the end of the season.’
