Beales Department Store will continue its community sponsorship deal with League One AFC Bournemouth, reports SportsPro. The retailer has agreed to renew its support for the Saturday Soccer Club for another year.

Beales has been a sponsor of the programme, which is operated by AFC Bournemouth's Community Sports Trust and provides free weekly coaching and other activities to boys and girls aged seven to 12, for the past two years.

The head of the AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust, Steve Cuss, said: "The support from Beales over the last two years has been absolutely tremendous. They have helped us to keep on delivering the soccer schools for free and I would like to thank them on behalf of all the children who turn up week in, week out. We are really looking forward to another year's worth of soccer schools and hopefully reaching more kids over the course of the next 12 months."
