Exmouth’s McDonalds franchise has donated football kits to Brixington Blues youth football teams.

An Exmouth youth sports team has benefited from free kit worth £700 from a national fast-food chain.

Brixington Blues FC has been provided with new kits and training jackets by Exmouth’s McDonalds branch, in Liverton Business Park.

This donation has come from franchisee David Shawyer who presented the under sevens and under 10s with their new strips at the Exmouth restaurant.

He said: “Brixington Blues is a fantastic club that is dedicated to helping young players from the local area enjoy the game and build their confidence.

“It is so important to show support for grassroots community sports in the area so I was thrilled to donate new kits to the club - I look forward to continuing this partnership in the future.”

Brixington Blues FC was formed in 1983 and currently has more than 180 youth players with teams ranging from under sevens to under 18s playing in the Exeter and District Youth League.

Jason Dean, coach at Brixington Blues, said: “We’re hugely grateful to McDonald’s for donating new kits and training jackets to both our Under 7s and Under 10s teams.

“We depend on the support of local businesses such as McDonald’s, and local people like David. 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 and jackets. Having the kit has created fantastic unity and team spirit and has given the kids extra motivation to train and have a great season.”
