HEREFORDSHIRE has signed a new kit sponsorship deal with Umbro as part of the supplier's £2million nationwide investment into grassroots football.

The deal will see Umbro footballs, clothing and equipment distributed to every county FA in England.

"Umbro's generous sponsorship will enable Herefordshire FA to work with more clubs, more players and encourage more people to get into football," said HFA secretary Jim Lambert. "It will provide much needed equipment and resources for Herefordshire FA and I have no doubt that football in the region will benefit hugely from this sponsorship deal."

THE Herefordshire FA under-16 side will travel to the Moorways Stadium in Derby on Sunday to play the Derbyshire FA with a 2pm kick-off.

Herefordshire: Liam Brewer (Pegasus Juniors), Ben Barnfield (Woofferton), Tom Watkins (Ledbury), Joe Price (FC Phoenix), Joe Murphy (Leominster Minors), James Cuthbertson (FC Phoenix), Andrew Martin (Woofferton), Will Sparrow (Ludlow Town), Jim Morton (FC Phoenix), Joel Edwards (FC Phoenix), Sam Preece (Pegasus Juniors), Matt Davies (Leominster Minors), Max Munro (Hereford Lads Club), Daniel Brazine (FC Phoenix), Adam Day (Pegasus Juniors), Steve Harris (Pegasus Juniors), Anthony Caitlin (Leominster Minors).
