A local football team has taken delivery of a brand new playing strip, courtesy of Manning Stainton.
Representatives of East Leeds FC called into the Crossgates branch of the area’s leading estate agent to receive the kit from Branch Manager Lesley Robinson ahead of the forthcoming season.
Team Manager Matthew Nealon says: ‘It is a fantastic gesture by Manning Stainton to sponsor our new kit and we will certainly be the envy of all the other teams in the league. Hopefully, our performances will match our appearance.’
Matthew formed East Leeds FC seven years ago and the team now competes in the Leeds Combination Division 1 as well as the Leeds Sunday Summer League. They play their home games at Skelton Road in the East End Park area of the city.
Lesley Robinson adds: ‘We know how hard it is for local teams to raise the funds to cover things like pitch hire, equipment and referees so it has been a real pleasure helping the lads out. We look forward to keeping an eye out for their results.’
Manning Stainton has helped East Leeds FC through its on-going Community Support Programme which has donated in excess of £50,000 to over 50 clubs, schools and other worthwhile organisations in the last 12 months. Other beneficiaries have included Grimes Dyke Primary School.
Lesley explains: ‘We are privileged to be able to provide support within the community and see it have such a positive impact.’
The company’s Crossgates branch is open seven days a week and the team is ready to take customer calls from 8am – 8pm every day. It is one of 19 Residential Sales and Lettings branches across West and North Yorkshire helping people move.
