As part of Official Liverpool FC’s Automotive Partner Vauxhall’s wider support for youth football, Lookers Vauxhall Birkenhead officially handed over a brand new team kit to Oxton Ladies U13s this week in Liverpool.

Liverpool star Kolo Touré was on hand to present the Vauxhall-sponsored kit to Oxton Ladies U13s as part of a Liverpool FC Youth Clinic hosted at Rainhill High School.

Central defender Kolo, who also represented his native Ivory Coast in Brazil this summer, dropped in to surprise the players who had no idea he would be handing over the new strip!

Martin Benbow, Sales Manager at Lookers Vauxhall Birkenhead, commented: “Supplying Oxton Ladies U13s with a brand new football kit is just the starting point of an exciting new partnership between Lookers Birkenhead and the club.

“We also have a dedicated Football Champion who will work closely with the team to continue our support.

“Lookers Vauxhall Birkenhead are delighted to be part of the Vauxhall Youth Football Programme; it’s an excellent way to work with our local community in a meaningful and fun way.”

Oxton Ladies FC coach Tracey Abbott added: “This programme is a great initiative by Vauxhall and it provides a much needed level of support to junior football clubs around the country.

“We’re absolutely delighted with our brand new kit from Lookers Vauxhall Birkenhead.

“Meeting Kolo and the Liverpool coaches today has been an unbelievable experience for the girls and one we’ll all remember for a long time!”
