AFC Wembley U11s have received a brand new free kit courtesy of local McDonald’s franchisee Henri Appiah, and the McDonald’s and FA Kit Scheme.

The McDonald’s kit scheme, now in its fourth year, has provided over 175,000 kits to clubs across the UK with 70,000 new football kits being delivered in 2016.

This season has seen a huge number of applications from clubs across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland who were eligible to order a brand new kit choosing from a number of styles and colours.

Appiah, who is a keen supporter of grassroots football, said: “AFC Wembley are an excellent example of a grassroots club with a great community spirit. I really enjoyed meeting the team and the coaches, and I’m proud that I’ve been able to provide the U11s with a strip this year.

“It’s fantastic to be able to support local sport in the area, and I would like to thank the team for inviting me along to celebrate with them in receiving their new kit and wish them the best for this year’s season.”

Mo Jama, Chairman of AFC Wembley, said: “We’re hugely grateful to McDonald’s for donating a new kit for our U11s team. An average team strip costs around £500 per season, so this really is a huge saving for us and means we can spend the money on other areas of the club that need it.

“The kids absolutely love wearing their new strip. Having the kit has created fantastic unity and team spirit and has given the players extra motivation to train and have a great season.”

AFC Wembley were founded in 2007 and are based in Brent. They were the first club in Brent to achieve the Chartered Standard Development accreditation and one of a handful of clubs in Middlesex to have currently achieved this status.

Their motto is “Development for Success” with the development and welfare of the players at the heart of their club.
