    “For us, this sponsorship is about championing women in all their endeavours, which really underpins everything we do at Pink Lady.”

    Bill Little, the Pink Ladies’ coach, said: “It’s really exciting to have a brand like Pink Lady supporting the team.”

    He added: “It’s great to know that local businesses are behind the team, and the new shirts really stand out from the rest!”
