Award-winning local housebuilder, Linden Homes has gifted 41 waterproof jackets to the U7’s football team at Royston Youth FC and provided rain shelters to protect the substitutes whilst watching and playing games when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Earlier in the season the team played a match in bad weather and suffered with being both very wet and cold, so the team leader sought sponsorship for waterproof tops for the team to match their kit and rain shelters to provide further protection to those off the pitch.

Linden Homes also have a pitch sideboard now sitting pride of place, with the £700 cost contributing towards the Royston FC Adult team.
