AN EAST Lothian primary school has scored brand new kit thanks to a sponsorship deal with CALA Homes.
The football team at West Barns Primary School will benefit from playing strips, shorts, socks and goalkeeper kit after the developer stepped up to purchase the full kits.
Steven Gray, volunteer coach of the primary school team, leads training sessions with the players using his expertise from coaching his son’s team at Dunbar United Colts.
He said: “The strips make a real difference for our school and make the kids feel like they are part of a team.
“I would like to thank CALA for the support in sponsoring our strips. We are looking forward to many more games with the players looking the part”.
The full blue and white strips include embroidered school initials, with the CALA Homes logo emblazoned on the front.
The mixed team features boys and girls from P4 to P7 playing 7-a-side matches against other schools from East Lothian.
With training sessions once a week, the school offers a number of opportunities for boys and girls to participate in organised football in a safe and friendly environment.
Craig Lynes, Land Director at CALA Homes (East), said: “Strong community spirit is important – and fun, inclusive school football teams are a great contributor towards it.
“It is fantastic to know that the kids at West Barns are keeping fit, active and getting involved with a close-knit team – and that we were able to help out in a small way by providing this kit.
“We hope they enjoy the rest of the season.”
CALA Homes has recently been awarded planning permission for its Beveridge Row development which will include two, three and four bedroom homes comprising of detached family homes, cottage style apartments and terraced units.
The 90 homes will provide 25% affordable housing.
