Kirriemuir Thistle U19s kicked off the 2017/18 football season in style with some brand new kit supplied by Miller Hendry solicitors and estate agents.
Ernie Boath, Partner and Head of Private Client Department, presented the strips to the delighted squad at a recent training night in Martin Park.
Mr Boath, who has a strong personal connection with the squad, explained: “Miller Hendry sponsored the team some years ago when my older son Calum played in the U9s and now my younger son Duncan is playing in the U19s.
“Supporting and encouraging young people in the area is very important to us and we are delighted to be able to highlight the commitment and passion of the players and volunteers at Kirriemuir Thistle JFC by supplying the U19s with their new club strips. I hope the new kit will bring them luck in their fixtures throughout the year.”
As a business with offices and long-standing roots in the Angus, Tayside and Perthshire area, Miller Hendry is delighted to be able to support a local football team which is dependent on parents, members of the local community and all important sponsors to sustain and develop the team.
Scott Hodge, Manager of Kirriemuir JFC U19s, added: “As with any youth organisation and football club, we can only maintain and develop our club with the support of local businesses through sponsorship as well as receiving the continued support of volunteers such as parents and relatives. It is great to see so many local companies such as Miller Hendry offer their support this year.”
