SKF kit sponsorship is a winner for Dyce Academy under 14s

The new SKF-funded kits replace old, ill-fitting strips and have helped to instil a sense of pride in the young school football team.
A new football kit, sponsored by local business SKF, has helped the Dyce Academy under 14s squad gain an edge over the opposition, with the team winning three out of the four games they have played in it so far. Prior to receiving the new strip, the players from the Aberdeen school had to wear shirts and shorts that were designed for younger footballers and not adequate for their size, but now they are proud to take to the field and tackle the competition in their striking orange and black kit.
Diane Anderson, QHSE Manager at SKF, said: “We are delighted to support the Dyce Academy under 14s and are particularly happy to see the squad already doing so well in their new strips. We hope that this good luck and sporting excellence continues throughout the season for these talented young footballers.”
Michael Manson, Acting PT Guidance at Dyce Academy, said: “We are hugely grateful for the support from SKF. The new strips are already proving to be a good luck omen and they have given the pupils a sense of pride when representing their team. The generous offering will boost the extracurricular football programme offered at our school and the kits will be worn by our young sports stars for many years to come.”
