Holt United Youth U10s are celebrating after winning a sponsorship deal from Structure-flex in Cromer for the second year in succession.

The sponsorship comes at the end of an exciting season for the Kelling Road team who enjoy competing with other junior teams across the county in the largest youth league in Norfolk.

Joint manager Andy Grand, commented: 'The main emphasis at this young age is development and fun and to ensure that the boys have smiles on their faces when they play.

'A lot of local sports teams rely heavily on contributions from local businesses and we are no different, so to receive such a generous donation from Structure-flex is absolutely brilliant and the whole team is very grateful for their support.'

The sponsorship has been used to purchase a new home team kit which the team will be wearing when the new season starts in September as they compete in the Norfolk Combined Youth League and Cups.

Managing Director at Structure-flex, Paul Reeve, commented: 'As a local employer and business we believe that supporting the community is really important so we were absolutely delighted to get involved and to help the team get a new strip is wonderful. We're proud they will be wearing the Structure-flex logo next season.'

The company, who supply flexible fabric products, has been a major employer in the North Norfolk area for 45 years and moved its manufacturing business from Melton Constable to Cromer in 2015 after completing a £1.5m refurbishment programme at the premises.
