AFC Bournemouth have recently helped MSP Capital celebrate their 40th anniversary with a very special kit giveaway to support local youth teams and schools.
The Cherries official shirt sponsor, Bournemouth-based MSP Capital were keen to give back to the local community with a giveaway focused on providing full kits and sports equipment to the people who need it most.
Young fans were asked to design their very own Cherries kits, entering on behalf of their school or community team in the BH area.
Over 400 entries were received for the giveaway, making for some very difficult decisions when it came to picking out the best designs.
Great designs helps teams Get Kitted Out
The winners were then congratulated during online chat sessions by first team players Sam Surridge, Arnaut Danjuma, Mark Travers and Asmir Begovic.
Paul Miracca, Director for MSP Capital spoke about the success of the campaign:
