Budding footballers in Bolton received an added boost at Friday’s StreetWise Soccer event, thanks to sponsorship from Domino’s Pizza.

Domino’s sponsored the youth football event, which took place at Bolton Town Hall on Friday [October 29, 2010]. Kicking off at 10am, the StreetWise Soccer day saw freestyle footballers from across the UK showing off their skills in a freestyle competition. In addition, local youngsters tried their hands (and feet!) at a match in the Streetwise Soccer Panna Cage, as well as picking up hints and tips from workshops taking place throughout the day. The budding footballers also competed in a skills competition – the StreetWise Soccer freestyle football showdown – which was won by Connor McCarthy.

As part of Domino’s sponsorship, staff from the stores in Derby Street and Blackburn Road, Bolton, were on hand to assist with the sporting activities, as well as providing piping hot pizza slices for the town’s top young talent.

Paul Sampson, franchisee of the Domino’s Derby Street store, said: “As a local store, we’re very keen to deliver more to our community and are delighted to support the StreetWise Soccer event. Events such as these which encourage budding young footballers to get involved and develop their talents are a fantastic idea – and you never know, we might just have found some new stars for The Wanderers!”
Kevin Tasker, co-director of StreetWise Soccer, said: “Like all clubs and groups, we need the support of local businesses to keep going and I’m delighted to welcome Domino’s on board. The sponsorship was a great boost to the Bolton event and we had a great time welcoming the town’s budding footballers.”
