A football team in Cottenham has scored a new kit thanks to a local housebuilder.

Cottenham United Colts received their striking new kit from Bellway, which has sponsored the under 12s girls’ team.

Bellway is building a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at its nearby Bower Place development, off Oakington Road.

David Burkett, lead coach at the club, said: “We are very grateful for this kind donation from Bellway.

“The girls are so pleased with their new kits, and they have been extremely excited to wear them on the pitch.
