Luton Vauxhall Parts Warehouse have shown their commitment to grass roots football by presenting Toddington Rovers Ravens Under-7s with a brand new team kit.

As part of Official Home Nation Sponsors Vauxhall’s wider support for youth football, Luton Vauxhall Parts Warehouse officially handed over the strip to Toddington Rovers Ravens at Vauxhall Luton’s Plant Open Day with the help of an England legend.

John Barnes, who gained 79 caps for his country, made the surprise presentation to Toddington Rovers Ravens’ coach Danny Lawrence and his players.

Barnes was joined by former Sheffield Wednesday and Crystal Palace legend Mark Bright, as both signed autographs for football fans and took part in a Q&A session.

Luton Vauxhall warehouse operations manager Peter Durham said: “Supplying the boys and girls of Toddington Rovers Ravens with a brand new football kit is just the starting point of an exciting new partnership between Luton Vauxhall Parts Warehouse and the club.

“We intend to work closely with the team by giving our time and ideas to support the club, we hope that this will continue to be a successful partnership.

“Luton Vauxhall Parts Warehouse’s sponsorship of Toddington Rovers Ravens highlights how committed Vauxhall are to supporting the game from grass roots through to top-level international football.

“We are delighted to be part of the Vauxhall Football Youth Programme.”

Toddington Rovers Ravens’ coach Danny added: “This is a great initiative by Vauxhall and it provides a much needed level of support to junior football clubs around the country.

“We are the latest to have felt the benefits of the Vauxhall Youth Programme and we will wear the Vauxhall logo on our shirts with pride.

“Having John Barnes and Mark Bright present the kit to us was brilliant and just further shows Vauxhall’s commitment to the game at grass roots level.”
