Great catch for Swindon netball club

Youngsters from a Swindon netball club are definitely looking smart after landing a new kit sponsor.

Thanks to the support of smart of Swindon, Croft Netball Club's under 11 and under 12 teams have been supplied with skirts, tops and hoodies which they will wear for their fixtures in the Swindon & District Junior League.

With more than 100 playing members, Jill Aldridge, who has been involved with Croft for more than 50 years, said that smart of Swindon's sponsorship was invaluable.

"We fund-raise when we can but it is hard to attract sponsorship when there are so many other sports trying to do the same," she said. "We have just spent more than £700 on netballs so we are delighted that the kit has been taken care of thanks to the generosity of smart of Swindon."

Croft could net some extra funds from smart of Swindon too, as they will receive £150 if customers mention the club when purchasing a smart car.

"We're only too pleased to be able to support a club that has been part of the Swindon sporting community for many years," said David Harries, Sales Manager, Mercedes-Benz and smart of Swindon. "Hopefully the new kit will give the girls a little bit of extra drive when they are on court and we wish them well for the rest of the season."
