A housebuilder is backing a local junior football team.

Barratt Homes North East is sponsoring Bedlington Town FC Hawks.

They will provide the junior girls team with £400 for a new team kit ahead of the current season.

The Hawks, which is an all girls youth team based in Bedlington, is made up of nine children, all under the age of 11.

The club, which plays near Barratt Homes’ Lakeside View development in Killingworth, now boasts more than 270 youngsters across various age groups and is working towards achieving ‘Community Club Standard’ status.
