The QEGS U14 football team will certainly be looking good at the start of next season and on their tour to Barcelona next October, after Accrington building contractors, David Gaffing Ltd, sponsored their new kit.

Gaffing has two children at QEGS, footballer George and swimming captain and deputy head of school Katie.

Under 14s coach, Mike Hindle said: “We are very grateful to Mr Gaffing and his company for sponsoring the team.

“It certainly makes the boys feel that bit special to have a sponsored shirt, although I will be making sure that they don’t swap them at the end of their international games!”
