Abingdon Town U10s Get Suited and Booted with Host Your Kit

Abingdon Town U10 Boys FC swopped their football boots for wellies – only briefly! – to celebrate winning Host Your Kit.

The team train and play at Abingdon Town FC’s ground which spent weeks less than two feet of water after the River Thames flooded back in January. The whole club suffered financially because of cancelled games and social functions.

Their plea for a new kit resounded with our judges and they were one of the teams awarded a brand new adidas kit in the March round of HYK.

Craig Cantwell, Abingdon Town U10s coach, said: “The flooding put the future of the club at risk so we put all our team funds towards the day-to-day running to help it survive. As a result we couldn’t afford a new kit for the boys so we entered Host Your Kit. It’s fantastic to have won. The new kit looks great and the boys will wear it with real pride.”

The team posed for a fun photo with their wellies on to celebrate winning the kit which they’ve been wearing at the tournaments they’re playing this summer.

Phil Worms, Director of Marketing for iomart, said: “The weather had a massive impact on the whole football club at Abingdon so we’re delighted to be able to help in some small way. We wish the team the very best of luck – they’ll need to swop those wellies for boots though!”
