Sharon Hosie from the club said, “The award we received from the Scottish Football Partnership Trust and the Clydesdale bank in conjunction with their Growing the Game initiative was a fantastic boost and made it possible to buy training kit and playing strips for our newly formed team. This gave the girls a feeling of unity and encouraged team spirit as they feel proud to be a part of rapidly growing sport but with their own team identity. We are extremely grateful to the Scottish Football partnership Trust for this generous donation”.
