Leicestershire see success in Respect awards

Leicestershire has been rewarded for its efforts in support of the Football Association's Respect campaign after winning three awards at the 2012 Respect Awards.

Leicester City received the FA Professional Game Award for their commitment to the cause, which culminated in the Respect fixture against Peterborough United in December, where the Foxes, Posh and the Northamptonshire County FA joined forces to promote the campaign.

Meanwhile, Harborough Town were handed the trophy for steps 5-7 of the National League system after they introduced a Respect registration day, supporters' marshals and a Respect subcommittee to operate across all of their 36 youth and senior teams. The Leicestershire and Rutland County FA won the nationwide Grassroots Youth League Award.

"The winners of these awards are an inspirational group of leagues, clubs and individuals," said Dermot Collins, The FA's Respect Manager, "They have decided how they want the game to be played and then take on the responsibility of creating and maintaining Respect in the game. It's a privilege to be able to reward them at The FA's showpiece final and use their example to convince others along the same path."

The recognition will a boost to all levels of football in the county with the Foxes leading by example. The three winners will be represented at the FA Cup Final at Wembley, where they will collect their awards.

Leicester City have announced a three-year technical partnership with sportswear manufacturer Puma that begins next month.

Following heavy speculation, the deal has now been confirmed officially by the club. Puma will provide training wear and team kit for the Foxes in addition to their current deals with Premier League Newcastle United and newly-promoted Reading.

"It is with great pride that we announce our fantastic new partnership with PUMA," said City's Chief Executive Susan Whelan, "Their reputation as an industry leader strengthens every item bearing their world-famous brand.

"Worn with pride by players and supporters alike, our first team kits are one of the biggest parts of our identity as a Football Club, so to have a renowned partner like PUMA alongside us in their development is a hugely exciting prospect.

"This news will generate a lot of anticipation among our supporters, who can look forward to seeing an excellent PUMA range in the City Fanstore from the end of July."
