A TEAM of Musselburgh footballers are jumping into new kit thanks to a sponsorship agreement with a town-based business (see image, right).

Musselburgh Young Stars’ 2008 age group side will be sponsored by Jump In, the trampoline park that opened its doors in the Honest Toun in April.

And Martin Higgs, the team’s head coach, said it was “great news” both for the team and the club, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.

He added: “As a club this is extremely important and no matter the background they get to have a chance to play football in a positive and fun environment, building social skills and importantly self worth and confidence, so having companies like Jump In invest in the club allows us to do that.”

Warwick Preston, general manager at Jump In, added: “We are proud to be sponsoring the Musselburgh Young Stars 2008 age group

“The whole team here at Jump In have got behind the team and club and look forward to supporting such an important and fantastic club.”
