AN insurance broker and security company have come together as joint sponsors of a junior football team.

JM Glendinning Blackburn joined forces with Full Circuit Fire and Security to sponsor Oswaldtwistle Juniors FC Saturday under-eights for the next two years.

The club, which plays in the Accrington and District Junior Football League, will display the JM Glendinning logo on the front of their shirts as they play across the district.

JM Glendinning Blackburn managing director, Matthew Stuttard said: “We are keen to support grassroots sports in our community, so we’re pleased to be able to sponsor the team.

“It’s been fantastic that we could bring Full Circuit Fire and Security, who is a client of ours, on as joint sponsors.

“We share the same common interest of protecting local business and giving back to the local community.”

Oswaldtwistle Juniors FC is an FA chartered football club that aims to encourage and increase participation in football within the community, to provide a framework of FA qualified coaching and provide the opportunities for children to fulfil their potential.

Team coach James Mulhall added: “We’re really grateful. The kids wear them with pride.”
