Accrington Observer - - YOUR VIEWS -

A NEW headline spon­sor has been an­nounced for the Ac­cring­ton & Dis­trict Ju­nior Foot­ball League.

With 2,300 play­ers from 202 teams across 42 clubs cater­ing from un­ders 7s to un­der 16s, the league is one of the most ac­tive in the re­gion.

Char­tered sur­vey­ors Lea Hough will now spon­sor the ADJFL for the next three years.

Paul Dig­nan, part­ner at Lea Hough, said: “Sport is some­thing that many of our staff en­joy and feel pas­sion­ately about.

“Sev­eral of our part­ners and staff also have young fam­i­lies, some of whom take part in or vol­un­teer at the league.

“As such, it’s great to be able to ‘give back’ and help to fund the things that keep the league func­tion­ing on a day to day ba­sis.

“The re­cent suc­cesses en­joyed by Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley have brought a re­newed en­thu­si­asm and in­ter­est in foot­ball and we hope that this will trans­late into even more kids get­ting in­volved with the ADFL.

“The pos­i­tive ef­fects of tak­ing part in reg­u­lar sport go far be­yond phys­i­cal abil­ity – par­tic­i­pat­ing in team sports is also great for build­ing con­fi­dence and en­cour­ag­ing team­work. These at­tributes help kids in many as­pects of their lives.”
