Nick Cutler, funeral director, said: “We were inundated with nominations for a lot of different teams in the area, but the nominations for the Aylesbury United Juniors U16s really stood out to us.
“It’s a pleasure to award a kit to such a persistent and hardworking team and we hope that it will really boost their morale.”
Team manager Peter Lee, who said: “At the end of the 2011/2012 season, we lost many of our players and we had to gradually rebuild. We lost every match last season and regularly had only 10 or 11 players, but those boys just kept going, week after week in the rain, cold and wind. This is a great reward and goes a long way towards making this season feel like a fresh start.”
