Chatteris under-10s were presented with the kit outside Chatteris bakers Boswell & Son.

If that was not enough, each player was given a ginger bread man iced in orange and black, the team’s colours.

The team is enjoying a successful season in the Cambs Mini Soccer Under-10s League.

Manager Andrew Fitzpatrick said: “We would like to say a big thankyou to Boswell. Their support has made a big difference, particularly as it is getting harder and harder to get sponsorship.”

The club is on the lookout for new players. If you are interested, go to chatteristownfc.org.uk or call Andrew on 07963 417006.
