New kit brings Brazilian flair

Young Footballers are sporting a brand new kit thanks to a generous Wirksworth business.

The town’s Under 18 Colts football team new look echoes the distinctive world-famous Brazilian side, thanks to the sponsorship of TDP, a landscape and construction products specialist, on Derby Road.

TDP has supported the team for over eight years.

Managing director Rob Barlow, said, “We are celebrating our 20th anniversary and have been based in Wirksworth for the last 12 years. As a local company we like to give our support to community activities.

“Youth football teams are a big part of life in the town so it is great to be at the heart of it.

“The new strip definitely brings to mind the style of the Brazilian team so we’re hoping to some see some of that famous Latin flair on the pitch.”

The Under 18s team is just one of 26 youth football teams run by the Wirksworth Colts.
