Winns Sponsors North Shields U17’s Football Team!

Winns are delighted to announce our sponsorship of North Shields Juniors AFC U17’s team for another two years.

The club, which is a registered charity, was founded in 1996 and is celebrating its 20th anniversary in October. The club provides opportunities for 500 boys and girls across all age groups.

The sponsorship provided by Winn Solicitors will fund a new strip for the team, who will represent the club in the Pinpoint Recruitment Junior Football League at U18s level for the coming season. The team will also play in the Northumberland FA County Cup and the East Northumberland Youth Divisional Cup.

North Shields U17's team has previously represented the club and sponsors in the Holland international tournament, where they came in third place. They have also been runners up in the Pinpoint League Cup, the Northumberland FA Junior Cup and the East Northumberland U17 Divisional Championships. After a fantastic season, they currently sit at the top of the Pinpoint Recruitment Junior Football U17 League.

Team Manager, Lindsay Coulthard said: “Winns have given unwavering support. Their involvement has allowed my U17 team to represent the club in a professional manner. I firmly believe in the ‘look good - feel good - play good’ factor. Over the recent two year sponsorship we have certainly bounced back with Winns to be a junior football team our club and local community can be proud of.”

Winn Solicitors Associate Director Michael Warmington said: “We are delighted to support North Shields U17s team for another two years. The team is a fantastic part of the local community and continues to offer great opportunities to young people in the local area.”
