THE sponsor of a Corsham AFC youth team claims their new kit has inspired them to a resounding victory in their first match of the season.

Corsham AFC Under 11s Tigers powered to a 6-1 win against Worton and Cheverell at Leafy Lane on Saturday with Jordan Tinson scoring a hat-trick.

The team were cheered on by local business owner Jackie Beckett who has spent £1,500 to sponsor their new match day and training kit for the season after chatting to one of the boys’ mums.

Jackie said: “There is so much negative publicity today about rising obesity levels in children and even Type 2 diabetes. Too much screen time is often blamed as well as inactivity.

“It was truly encouraging to see so many youngsters this morning, supported by families, playing their hearts out. Children of all ages from under 6 to under 18s learn so much playing team sport that will serve them well."

Ms Beckett has premises in New Road, Chippenham, and Bristol plus a team of over 20 experts in weight loss management through the Cambridge weight plan.

All her consultants offer face-to-face consultations to people wishing to lose weight and more importantly, to keep it off.
