THE "Cherries", Cheriton Fitzpaine's First team, has received a new kit thanks to a local firm.

Forge Garage at East Village has been a valued sponsor of football teams at Cheriton Fitzpaine for a number of years and has renewed sponsorship of the first team again this year.

The garage has an MOT station at East Village and carries out repairs and servicing.

There to present the new kit were Kevin Davey and his brother Wayne, Wayne's wife Teresa and children, Aaron (8) and Morgan (7).

The new kit is coloured claret and blue, which the team used to play in years ago.

Forge Garage also sponsor the Cheriton Fitzpaine Under 10's.

Ben Dommett, joint team manager, said he would like to thank Forge Garage for their generous sponsorship, adding it was "again, much appreciated".
