The Mavericks United Under 12s team will have new goal posts thanks to the Acorn Gallery and a Football Association grant.

Acorn Gallery topped up a Football Association grant received by Mavericks United Under 12s team, allowing the club to buy some goal posts for the coming 2020/21 season.

The team, which is based at Barmby Moor, was recently awarded the grant through their local FA to purchase some new goal posts. Finding the sum awarded was a little short of the required cost, officials had tried to create ways of raising the extra funds but struggled to bring in the cash.

Ben Andrews at the club said: “This is a fantastic gesture from a great company, and the boys at Mavericks United can’t wait until football returns again in December to put the posts to great use. Thank you Acorn Gallery.”
