Rab Taylor, Coach/Secretary of Musselburgh Windsor Girls F.C. said “The coaches and girls of the Under-15 age group are very grateful for the Award from The SFP’s Growing the Game Fund. This has assisted us greatly towards the set-up costs of our new girls team. We have managed to purchase first aid and training equipment, as well as adding a contribution along with our sponsor towards the cost of new football strips. This award has taken a great deal of pressure off the coaches in terms of fundraising activities, and has allowed us to concentrate more heavily on coaching the new team.”
“All of the players and coaches would like to thank The Scottish Football Partnership for this generous award.”
