Doncaster’s Adwick Allstars junior football team can now turn out in style after winning a nationwide kit makeover competition, thanks to soon-to-launch football app High5it.

After receiving social media votes and support from local fans and professional players, including former Doncaster favourite Billy Sharp, the youth side who play in the Doncaster District Junior League every Sunday were one of five table toppers in the ‘junior’ category, bagging them the prize of a new High5it-sponsored team strip, a set of new balls and a £500 club donation.

Spokeswoman Donna Ashwell said: “We are over the moon! Winning means a lot, especially as we had our containers broken into recently.”
