Budding footballers in Darlington have received a significant financial boost from My Property Box.

The Darlington-based letting agency, has supported Darlington TSC U13s with the purchase of brand-new kits for the team.

Darlington TSC U13s, which play at Hummersknott Academy in Darlington, finished in fifth place last season and are hoping to secure promotion in 2019.

Established in 2012, My Property Box is an innovative letting agency covering the North East, which delivers a range of letting services, including a bespoke digital platform for landlords, as well as a mobile app for tenants.

Ben Quaintrell, Managing Director of My Property Box, said: “It is important to support the local community and grassroots sport, in particular, which helps to develop youngsters and teaches them the value of teamwork, among other crucial skills. I have known Ed Harrison for a long time and was more than happy to support him and the lads in the season ahead.

“We’ll be taking a keen interest in the team’s progress and I’d like to wish Darlington TSC U13s all the very best this season and in the future.”

Ed Harrison, Manager of Darlington TSC U13s, said: “We rely heavily on support from parents and the local community, so sponsorships and donations are crucial to the club’s long-term future and success. I’d like to thank Ben and his team at My Property Box for their generosity and ongoing support, which we are incredibly grateful for.”
