A local football team is celebrating their victory after winning the cup final and finishing top of the league with support from Bury audiologists.

Roach Dynamos Junior Football Club Under 17s has brought home the trophy after taking on Rose Hill Junior Football Club Under 17s in the cup final at Hyde United Stadium this weekend.

Their win comes after support from their sponsors, Specsavers Audiology in Bury, who stepped up as the main kit sponsor for the team for the 2023 / 24 season, providing the team’s signature orange and black jerseys.

The team, who played in the East Manchester U17s Sunday league, received the full kit for all 15 players including a top, shorts and socks that were worn at every game.

Claire Watters, store director at Specsavers Bury, says: ‘It’s important for us to support our local community where possible, whether that be directly through our services and expertise in-store or indirectly by championing others, giving them the ability and facilities to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

‘If you notice a change in your hearing, no matter your age, get your hearing checked. A free hearing test at Specsavers will help you understand how well you’re hearing as well as assess your overall ear health.

‘We’re over the moon that Roach Dynamos Junior Football Club Under 17s has taken home the trophy this season – they also win the prize for best dressed from us!’

Andrew Barnes, manager of Roach Dynamos Junior Football Club Under 17s, says: ‘We are absolutely thrilled that Specsavers stepped in to help fund the kit. Without the support of local businesses, grassroots football would be unsustainable, so we’re extremely grateful.

‘And we’re super happy with our success this season – well done boys!’
