Silvery Tweed score on the pitch
Berwick-upon-Tweed based cereal processing company, Silvery Tweed Cereals, is pleased to be the sponsor of Berwick Rangers Community Academy U12s’ away kit.
The team, who play in the Northumberland FA Premiership, will display the Silvery Tweed logo on its shirts when they take to the pitch and enjoy their football.
Berwick Rangers Community Academy U12s’ manager Jonathan Brown said, “It’s fantastic that Silvery Tweed is supporting the side and helping the players turn out in their new club strips. The aim is always to help the kids enjoy their football. These new kits will help the way that the kids train and play, as they will bring a sense of pride to represent Berwick Rangers and the local community, as well as fostering a good team spirit.”
The team is currently on a good run, with five wins from their seven league games, which sees the side currently sitting two points from the summit of the Premiership. Many of the team have played football since a young age and a number of players now play at county level.
This year, the team joined Berwick Rangers Community Academy, a charity which seeks to provide wider access to sports for the local community and runs a women’s football team and four youth teams, along with holiday sports camps and events.
Silvery Tweed Cereals Managing Director Robert Gladstone, said, “We are keen to support grassroots sport and our local community. I feel it’s important for kids to be involved in sports as it teaches many important skills, such as teamwork. It also helps to encourage a healthy lifestyle which hopefully continues into adulthood. The son of a member of our New Product Development department plays for the team, and when she mentioned that it was looking for a sponsor, it was an easy decision for Silvery Tweed to take that position. We wish the team every success for the rest of the season!”
