Barnoldswick Town Juniors Under 8s Yellow team have made a wonderful gesture, dedicating their playing strip to local charity Bosom Friends.

Bosom Friends provide help and support to anyone whose lives have been touched by any type of cancer.

When a team needs a new kit, the club actively seek sponsorship from local businesses, but with no offers forthcoming, the club – reminiscent of Barcelona’s Unicef link in 2004 – decided to pay for the kit themselves and promote the charity.

• Pendle Forest Under 11s Vipers beat Blue Star 5-0 on Sunday to win their divisional title and promotion.

Goals came from man of the match Connor Turner, Callum Mahady, Thomas Leedam and Dylan Holder.

Forest’s Under 12s Tornados drew 2-2 at Rossendale United with Finn Buck and Ethan Connor on target.

Harrison Brown was named man of the match.
