AN award-winning IT company has thrown its support behind Thirsk Falcons U11 "clarets".

The sponsorship from Thirsk Industrial Estate-based TeleWare is a boost for the team as they continue to expand and play at a high level in the Teesside Junior Football league.

TeleWare employees also invited the young players to their offices where they got to grips with some of the company’s top of the range technology.

Coach Greg Hickman said: “The new match kit looks fantastic, we can’t thank Teleware enough for their support of the team, it makes a real difference to the players and instils a real sense of pride.

“The players had a great time visiting Teleware HQ and checking out their VR technology.”

Paul Millar of TeleWare said the firm is passionate about supporting local communities and young people.
