A BUILDERS’ merchant is sponsoring a youth football team for the 2016/2017 season.

Covers Timber and Builders Merchants in Portsmouth will be sponsoring Denmead FC’s under-nines youth team.

Based at the King George playing fields, Denmead Football Club’s U9s team enjoyed success last season by winning the league Cup Trophy Event 2016 and being chosen as the Denmead Football Club Team of the Year.

The sponsorship will provide the team with a new kit for the 2016/2017 season, which will feature the Covers’ logo.

Matt Banks, spokesman for Denmead FC, said: ‘We are delighted to be receiving Covers’ support and very much looking forward to the new season and aiming to replicate our success from last year.’
