Ryan Giggs delivers new kit to children at Flint Town FC
The former Manchester United player announced a four-year programme between McDonalds UK and the Football Association of Wales to support the club and hundreds of others across Wales.
Footballing legend Ryan Giggs paid a visit to Flint last Friday to personally deliver a brand new kit for youngsters at Flint Town United FC.
The former Manchester United player, who is the new McDonald’s Head of Welsh Football, also announced a new four-year programme between McDonald’s UK and the Football Association of Wales which will support hundreds of grassroot football clubs across Wales.
The programme will give more than 500 clubs with a junior team across Wales the opportunity to order a new Adidas strip every year for the next four seasons – with a potential 7,000 individual kits to be distributed to clubs in Wales in the first year.

Speaking at Flint Town United FC’s ground, Giggs said: “Grassroots football is so important to the infrastructure of the game and it is vital that we support clubs across the country in as many ways as possible to help raise the standards of Welsh football.
“Launching the McDonald’s Kit Scheme today was a lot of fun.
“Flint Town is a fantastic example of all the great work that is being put into grassroots football by clubs in Wales and the vital role that they play in supporting their local communities.”
