The club was delighted to receive their award from the SFP and Dianne Stewart from the club said “We are really pleased to be given this funding and the club will benefit hugely from this. The award will allow us to purchase new footballs for training and all other training aids. It will also enable us to order jackets with the Lewis United Logo for the coaches so that the children can easily identify them at our weekend games. The children thoroughly enjoy their training nights and match play at the weekends and are extremely grateful for the generosity of the SFP.”
