Kitlocker and Nike to work with Centre of Excellence

Grantham College and Harrowby United are pleased to announce that the Centre of Excellence will be teaming up with Kitlocker and Nike commencing the 17/18 season.

All Centre of Excellence training kit and match day kit will be provided by Kitlocker and Nike. There will also be an online store for the Centre of Excellence players where they can personalise their training kit if needed.

Kitlocker was formed in 2005 and has worked with various schools, colleges, grassroots & semi-professional football clubs. The company have also worked with many universities including Oxford and Cambridge and have recently worked as a preferred partner on the Nike Partner Club Scheme – partnering Kitlocker with a number of the larger FA Charter Standard Clubs in England. Nike is a well-known worldwide brand that will offer the Centre of Excellence quality products for the players that have been invited to join the programme.

Head of Football Centre of Excellence Alex Cross explained that this is an excellent relationship being formed. “I had a couple of phone calls with Nike and then met with Kitlocker at the beginning of the week. I was extremely impressed with the professionalism the company offered and they have been very thorough over the past few days. We want to offer the players the best experience possible at the Centre of Excellence and relationships like this go a long way in ensuring there is longevity in the programme.”

Kitlocker and Nike will be present at upcoming events within the college which will give the players the opportunity to see the quality of the products that will be used at the Centre of Excellence.
