the kids “looked ridiculous training in the older children’s kit. They are only four or five-years-old and it drowned them.”

The reaction follows a report in the Bury Free Press detailing the story of Hardwick Primary School’s young football team who, thanks to an investment from the local council, have been able to invest in personalised football kits that fit them perfectly.

With almost thirty children across Reception and Year One wanting to take part in the school’s football team, the staff could hardly resist – despite the fact they had no kits in suitable sizes for the little ones to play in.

Their first matches were played in strips that had been handed down from older pupils and as a result were hugely oversized, making each outing a less than comfortable experience for the emerging stars.

One of the school’s volunteer coaches, Andy Abbott, said that the kids “looked ridiculous training in the older children’s kit. They are only four or five-years-old and it drowned them.” Fortunately, their plight reached the attention of Sarah Stamp, the local councillor for St.

Edmundsbury Borough Councillor who stepped up and invested over £200 to ensure that they could continue their season in kits that fit them perfectly.

Mr Abbott was delighted:“The kits looked really great. It was a very proud moment when they took to the pitch wearing the school colours and they won their first game 5-3. It was really lovely and we are very grateful to Sarah for her support.”

A spokesperson for Team Colours, market leaders in custom sports kits, has released a statement following the report: “It’s wonderful to see that the youngest members of the Hardwick Primary School football community have now got access to custom made kits that are the right fit for them to play in.

“We understand that for local clubs and schools it can often be difficult to find the available funds to kit out a full team, but that is where Team Colours can come in to help. Our ‘Design Your Own’ tool allows you to customise each strip down to the final detail – all for great value.

We don’t believe quality, well-fitting kits should necessarily be available at a premium, and that’s why we’ve helped thousands of people walk out onto the pitch or court every week wearing comfortable, durable attire.”
