SimpleServe is pleased to announce that we’re the proud sponsors of Hillside Lions Under 10’s football club, based in Norwich. Having our directors nephew in the team meant we couldn’t really say no when we heard that the team were seeking new sponsors – so we stepped in to provide just what they wanted!
Our owner’s nephew plays for the Lions and when we found out their kit was in dire need of replacement, it was only natural for us to offer to sponsor the team and provide the new kit and offer additional assistance such as a new, revamped website and the possibility of a local cup sponsored tournament; with all proceeds going back to the Lions.
We spoke to the head coach, Steve, and quickly established a kit design and set about ordering a mock-up kit. A few days later we had the mock-up strip and following successful feedback, placed the main order – via Rob from 99kits.com – with our primary logo encompassing the central position on the front of the top, with the Lions branding added to the back, above the squad number.
A polyester based top means the players will be kept cool & dry through sweating.
You can see the strip development below:
The kit is a modern Errea JARO branded, polyester kit. The colour scheme is the teams normal colours incorporating the royal blue backing with yellow sashes and comes with matching shorts and yellow Errea socks.
“Hi my name is Steve and I’m a FA Level One qualified football coach. I, along with Bryn, coach the Hillside Lions U10 team based in Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich. We have been coaching this team since they were U6. We are a great little team predominately made up of children from the Hillside Avenue Primary School with a few children from the surrounding area.”
“We recently reached out to our parents and supporters for help with a new kit. Eric from SimpleServe Web Design, whose nephew Alex plays for the team, kindly offered to help us out by purchasing a full kit for the boys. The new kit looks great and the boys won their first game whilst wearing it.”
