Opticians back football team’s sporting vision

Specsavers Llanelli is continuing its partnership with Coleg Sir Gâr’s Football Academy as they sponsor the college squad with a brand-new kit for the season ahead.

The college’s first football team is currently top of the English Colleges Football Association category two league with 15 points, having only lost two games.

Jonathan Garcia, football director at Coleg Sir Gâr said: “It’s been a great start to the season with so many first-year students signing up to the squad.

“We really appreciate the support from our main sponsor Specsavers as we can proudly and professionally compete on the UK playing field.”

Coleg Sir Gâr’s development team, led by its sports degree students is also sitting top of the ECFA category three west league, unbeaten with 19 points.

Susan Lewis, store director at Specsavers Llanelli, says: “The health of your eyes can say a lot about your physical wellbeing, which is why it is important for individuals to get their eyes checked at least once every two years.

“This is even more vital for sportspeople, such as those at Coleg Sir Gâr’s Football Academy, who would be unable to do what they do without good vision.

“We are immensely proud to be associated with such a talented group of young players who are so passionate about sport and fitness. On behalf of myself and the rest of the Specsavers team, we wish them the best of luck ahead of what promises to be another exciting season of football.”
