Sand Communications has given its backing to Kirk Deighton Rangers Junior Football team, who play in the Harrogate Junior League, by providing their squad of young players with brand new match day kit and training tops.

Sand’s support has been a huge boost for the 11 and 12-year-olds at KDR Juniors as they return to action after the lockdown, says club manager Andrew McCormick.

“We are very delighted to have the backing of Sand Communications here at KDR Juniors,” he said.

“Everyone involved is looking forward to an exciting season ahead and thanks to Sand Communications’ support the team looks fantastic.

“Looking the part and feeling good about themselves gives them a massive boost as we look to continue to be one of the premier teams in the Wetherby/Harrogate area.”

Alistair Jaruga, sales director at Sand, has a personal connection to KDR Juniors because his son Albie plays for the club.

He said: “Having the opportunity to sponsor this developing team was an easy decision, especially seeing how much they had all grown over the recent lockdown.

“We firmly believe that looking smart provides better results and I am sure the new kits are going to assist the team with some more great performances this year.

“Come on Kirk Deighton!”

KDR Juniors manager Andrew said the club is always looking to strengthen the squad.

“We have a great group of players with a great attitude towards their football, both as individuals and more importantly, as a team,” he said.

“As a club, we provide our players every opportunity to develop as footballers whilst helping to build their characters.

“The team spirit and camaraderie amongst them is obvious at every match and training session.

“It has been a pleasure to support them and see them enjoying their football so much.”

Anyone interested in joining the club, which promotes itself as having a positive and progressive ethos, should phone Andrew on 07562 670194.

Sand Communications, which prides itself on its track record for delivering first class telecoms solutions to business clients across Harrogate, Yorkshire and the UK, recently moved into a brand new office building at Scottsdale House, Springfield Avenue in Harrogate.
