Marshalls Marksmen FC players are dressed to impress after winning a full team kit through E.ON’s Power Kicks competition.

The Gainsborough-based football team of under-sixes are now proudly wearing their new team kit for their matches played in local five-a-side tournaments.

Peter Green, whose son George and nephew Max both play for the team helps with organising the team and entered the competition on behalf of the youngsters.

He said: “We’ve only recently set the team up, though the boys and girls have been kicking balls around together informally for nearly three years.

“We had the basics - balls, cones and pop-up goals - but we were struggling for kits.”

Peter, who has worked for E.ON across Lincolnshire as a meter engineer for six years, won the kits after he entered the internal Power Kicks competition for employees.

He continued “Living and working in Lincolnshire, I’m really proud that E.ON has provided the new kit for my son, nephew and their teammates, and all the boys and girls are thrilled now that they look like a proper team.”
