Team wins online strip competition

A south east Northumberland junior football team has won an online competition to get a new kit.

Bedlington Town Bulldogs were named the winners of a Facebook competition run by High5it.

The team won new football kits, practice balls and £500 in cash.

The prizes were presented to the girls at Bedlington High School on Thursday by former Newcastle United and England star Peter Beardsley.

The money awarded will go towards a trip to Paris next year so the team can compete in a European football tournament.

So far High5it has presented grassroots sponsorship to Adwick AllStars, Bedlington Bulldogs, Bournemouth Sports Ladies, Eastwood Community Ladies and Hasland Ladies.
