Maricourt Catholic High School recently put out an appeal on its popular social media channels to see if members of the extended Maricourt family would be interested in sponsoring a set of shirts for its school football teams.


A number of former pupils and parents responded and were keen to get involved and support the pupils by purchasing sets of new shirts.


Former pupil and celebrity photographer Conor McDonnell, who recently came back home to Maricourt, brought a film crew along to record as he presented the new kits to pupils. This footage along with clips of the school's football team playing in a cup game will appear in an upcoming BBC documentary about Conor's incredible rise to fame.


The school were also delighted to have another former pupil Simon from LMA (Liverpool Media and Arts college) agree to sponsor two senior size kit for the boys' and girls' teams.  


Former pupil Elaine from Steina Physiotherapy in Maghull was keen to sponsor the junior boys' kit.

Also, one of the school's current pupils' parents who runs the Car Finance Company in Liverpool was keen to sponsor a double set of shirts for the Year 7 A and B teams. Another parent who owns the company Revive property kindly sponsored the girls' football team. Having three daughters to go through the school he was delighted to get involved.


Head of boys PE Andy Marshall was quick to thank the Maricourt family for reaching out to support the pupils with the new kits in what he hopes will be a mutually beneficial partnership.


Andy said: “It's really positive to have so many former pupils and inspiring partners working with us to provide stylish kits that our pupils can be proud to wear when they take part in Sefton, Merseyside and national cup competitions.”
