New strip will help team tackle rivals

A NEW kit could kickstart football at a Bognor Regis school.


The smart playing outfit was unveiled at Edward Bryant School at an end of season celebration.


Its players from Years 5 and 6 proudly posed in their red shirts, white shorts and black socks.


The 16 sets of kit were provided by one of the pupil’s parents, Stephen Turner, on behalf of Solutions Roofing.


Year 3 teacher Andrew Goodman, and one of the school’s football coaches, said: “Our previous kit was a bit hand me down and was looking ragged.


“This new kit has refreshed and rejuvenated the team. If the players are putting in the hard work, they have got to look the part as well.”


The London Road school had some success last season with a semi-final appearance in a competition between Bognor Regis and Felpham schools.


One of the players, centre-back Isaac Love, ten, said the new kit could help them go one step further next season.


“The texture of the new kit is quite good,” he said. “It’s easier to run in so you can move better in it. Playing centre-back is important for the team because you get the tackles in and get the ball up the pitch as far as you can.”
