Campbeltown & District Community F.C. were fortunate enough to be selected for a Growing the Game award from the SFP Trust. David Paterson from the club passed on the thanks of the girls and commented “This funding from the SFP Trust and Clydesdale Bank has allowed us to purchase some new kit for the girls and as you can see, they very much look the part. Your support has allowed the club to develop a girls only section within our community club for the first time. We previously had a mixed section, but now offer a separate session for the girls, with 16 to 20 players attending on a regular basis.”
