The TV duo visited the club to hand out matchday kits, training kit and equipment after the club was selected to get the ultimate Kit-Out experience.

Jason Adshead, Team Manager of Furness Vale FC, said: “To receive an award like this from Lucozade Sport would be recognition of all the hard work local people have put in, not only for the club but the community as a whole.”

Furness Vale were selected out of hundreds of teams who applied across the UK to win the competition.

Tubes and Franky met the team during training last week and even joined in with some of the drills.

Tubes said: “It’s great to be involved in what is a fantastic opportunity to give a normal weekend league team the credit they deserve.

“Running grassroots football clubs is not an easy job, especially with the lack of funding they get.

“The lads deserve a kit that makes them feel and look like pros.”

Vicky Morgan, Lucozade Sport Marketing Manager, says: “Furness Vale FC certainly deserves to win and have earned this reward.

“The club doesn’t have enough funding to buy new kit and have worked hard to keep their beloved local team going over the years.”
