Clare Stevenson, Treasurer of the club said “Thanks to The Scottish Football Partnership’s Growing the Game funding we have now added an additional two teams to our growing club. Our 2007 and 2008 age groups will be taking part in the Forth Valley Development 4’s in March 2015. We currently have 10 players in each group, with 2 coaches per group and a parent representative who will take on the first aid role. The funding was vital to allow us to purchase mini samba goals, bibs and footballs for new teams.”
