Charlene McClelland from the club advised that they were delighted with their award from the SFP’s Growing the Game Fund and commented that “this award has been a great boost for our team. It has helped us to purchase a new team kit and training equipment and has allowed us to play our fixtures and play and feel like a proper team.”
“The girls are also enjoying extended training sessions and thoroughly enjoying their football. This grant has given us some security for the rest of the season as we no longer have to worry about the costs of buying new kit.”
