A SUCCESSFUL football team celebrated its links with a Johnstone butcher by parading some silverware.

Players from Thorn Athletic 2006 YFC visited John Marshall & Son, in the town’s High Street, to show off the Paisley, Johnstone and District YFL First Division League Cup.

They were keen to thank the firm for sponsoring the team, which enjoyed an undefeated run to the final before seeing off Glasgow big guns St Cadoc’s.

Team manager Steven McKnight said: “The boys were amazing throughout the cup run and we thought it would be great to show off the trophy.

“John Marshall & Son have been great supporters of the team and we were delighted to represent them well during the season.”

Bryan Marshall, manager at John Marshall & Son, added: “It’s always great for a successful business to be associated with a successful team and it’s great to see Thorn Athletic thriving.

“We continue to support grassroots causes whenever we can.”
