A Didcot children's football team has a new away kit thanks to a donation from a housebuilder.

Vistry Thames Valley, provided £500 to Harwell and Hendred Youth Football Club.

The money was used to give the U8 Blacks side a new away uniform.

The U8 Blacks recorded a 2-1 win over St Edmunds in the first round of the Gold Cup while donning their new yellow and black kit.

The team is one of 22 at the football club, which operates from Boundary Park on Greenwood Way.

Training for the U8 Blacks, consisting of ten players, takes place every Wednesday.

Scott Drewett, the U8 Blacks manager, appreciated the funding.

Mr Drewett said: "We are incredibly grateful for the sponsorship.

"The boys are loving the new away strip.

"It’s really important for us to receive sponsorship to support the team’s sports budget, thereby allowing us to support our talented footballers, which may not have been possible without the boost from Vistry."

Amber Bowley, regional sales director for Vistry Thames Valley, was also pleased with the partnership.

Ms Bowley said: "Harwell and Hendred Youth Football Club plays an important role in the local community, offering valuable opportunities for children to learn and play football at every age and ability.

"We’re proud to support their fantastic work by sponsoring the U8 Blacks and we were delighted that the team won their first game in their new away kit."

Vistry Thames Valley is building on the Didcot Grove site.
