Wirral football club has a spicy new sponsor


Higher Bebington Hearts under 11s football team has been sponsored by a nearby restaurant for the new season.

The Alam Balti restaurant in Bebington confirmed it is backing the club, which has teams starting from under fives through to under 18s.

A spokesman for the club said: “The owners of the Alam were keen to get involved with the team and help support its development financially as it sees the club as a central part of the local community.

“Higher Bebington Junior Football Club provides a fantastic opportunity for the children to enjoy playing football in a safe environment and developing not only their skills but also their friendships.”

The restaurant’s manager added: “We are fortunate that most of the players’ parents have been regular and loyal customers of the restaurant for many years whether eating in or simply a takeaway and hopefully we will be able to continue to support them and stay involved with the team for many years to come.”
