Kintore club nets new sponsorship deal

A burgeoning north-east girls' football squad has clinched a kit sponsorship deal in time for the new season.

Kintore United recently introduced a dedicated girls section to complement its existing teams which compete at a variety of age groups from primary school through to under-19s.

Already more than 25 youngsters are taking part in weekly training sessions with the Aberdeenshire club, with that number continuing to grow.

One of the Kintore United coaches Lisa Thomson, who is operations director with business software specialist Codify, has secured sponsorship from her Aberdeen-based employer to purchase playing kit for the under-11s girls team.

She said: "We're delighted with how quickly the girls section has gathered pace and it is fantastic to see the skill and enthusiasm in the group. It looks set to go from strength to strength and we are always happy to see new players joining.

"Kintore United has always welcomed girls, who in the younger age groups have traditionally played alongside boys in the same teams, and this is a natural next step.

"On behalf of everyone at the club, I must thank Codify for this backing. The company supports a variety of good causes, from charities to grass roots sport, and everyone at Kintore United appreciates the gesture."
