For the fourth year running, Grangemouth-based Recognition Express has launched a competition for Under 16s teams to nominate their unsung hero and win a complete set of new football shirts, shorts and socks.

David Mitchell, director of Recognition Express South East Scotland said: “Our annual Unsung Heroes competition is a fantastic way to recognise those who support junior football clubs to ensure these young players reach their potential.

“Anyone who goes over and above for the club can be nominated; from coaches and caretakers to club secretaries and groundsmen, anyone whose selflessness and commitment allows girls and boys to enjoy football in a safe, friendly and welcoming environment.”

With club sponsorship hard to come by, along with the added expense for mums and dads, Recognition Express is offering the new gear to one lucky team in a design of their choosing.

“As specialists in promotional items and branded clothing, it makes sense for us to combine a new team strip whilst recognising an unsung hero,” he added.

“It gives us the chance to recognise the contribution and give something back to the community we serve.”

The competition is open to all under 16’s junior football clubs playing in Grangemouth. To enter click hereand complete the simple entry form.

The competition closes on Sunday, April 5, 2020 and the winner will be announced from Monday, April 13.
