YOUNG footballers at Linwood High hope they are on the road to success after a sponsorship deal was agreed with a major car dealership.

The school’s under-16 boys’ team will now be sporting smart new kit, thanks to support from Arnold Clark Linwood.

Gillian Bowie, headteacher at Linwood High, said the new strips are a major boost for the team, which competes in the Under-16 Paisley and District Schools’ Football League.

She added: “We are really grateful to our local branch of Arnold Clark at the Phoenix, in Linwood, for their support and hope that our fantastic new strips bring us good luck in the games ahead.”
