It’s just like watching Barcelona From Durham Times

A DURHAM junior football team has followed the lead of Spanish giants Barcelona and sealed a sponsorship deal with a major charity.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust will be shown on the shirts of Deerness Valley Under-14s thanks to local business Allied Security Northern Ltd, which has donated the money for a new kit for the Russell Foster League team.But after hearing that team manager Colin Young is taking part in the Great North Run on Sunday to raise money for the trust in honour of his one-yearold grandson Jack, who was born with the disease, managing director Julie Pennal decided to put the charity logo on the team shirts, rather than the company’s.

For years, former European champions Barcelona have refused to put corporate advertisements on their chests. But four years ago, they signed a five-year deal with UNICEF.

A GROUP of young gymnasts from the North East returned home successful from the Sports Acrobatics World Championships in Wroclaw, Poland.

In the men’s pairs event, Alex Houston, 17, from Consett and Timothy Pritchard, 14, from Durham collected a silver medal – being edged out of the gold medal position by Russia.

In the women’s pairs competition, Jasmine Danby, 19, from Durham and Chelsea Fisher, 13, from Darlington finished agonisingly just out of the medals in fourth position.

All four are based at the Deerness Valley Gymnastics Club in Durham City.
