THIS team photograph marked a new sponsorship deal for a youth football team in the early 90s.

Posing in their new shirts, complete with an enormous National Grid logo, Bottesford Young Lions FC Under-10s had this photo taken for the Journal almost 20 years ago.

The picture was taken in September of 1991, before the team were due to begin their campaign in the Grantham Link Services Youth Football League.
