GB Railfreight has announced that they have sponsored Whitley Bay F.C. Juniors under 8 football team.

Whitley Bay F.C. Juniors under 8s Juve play in the Pin Point League, Keegan Division.

The sponsorship means the team can now look the part and have enough strips for new members who will join towards the end of the 2019/20 season.

The operator has wished the under 8 football team the best of luck for the remainder of the season

What did the officials say?

John Watson, Port of Tyne TM and Father of Sam (pictured far left) said:

“The sponsorship from GBRf will allow the team to have enough strips for the next 2 years which is really important. After winning their division last season they have been placed in a higher division this time around, and it shows!

Whitley Bay F.C. Juniors U8 Juve Lost their first game 5-1 against local rivals North Shields, Sam scoring the only goal, it’s going to be tough season! Once we get the passing right, we’ll be halfway there. Thank you for all your help”
