A NEW women’s football team has appealed for sponsors for their first season.

Ramsey and Mistley FC will be fielding its first ever ladies team for the 2019/20 season.

Chairman Robert Passmore said it was a very proud moment for the club.

But the team is still seeking a main sponsor and hopes some local businesses may come forward to support them.

Mr Passmore said: “Our ladies have been training together since last summer and we are all excited to see how they get on playing in the league.

“We have a couple of sponsors lined up already which we are very grateful for but we are looking for other local businesses who may be willing to support us.”

The sponsorship is needed to pay for home and away kits, training equipment, medical kits and fees associated with playing in the league.

Work is also being carried out to improve the changing rooms at the club’s Mistley ground.

Anyone who would like to support the team or wanting further details should contact Mr Passmore at robbourne36@hotmail.com or Anna Davidson on 07887 778514.
