St. Andrews & East Neuk F.C. were delighted to receive funding from the SFP Trust’s Growing the Game initiative in partnership with the Clydesdale Bank. The funding has allowed the club to set-up a new girls section and as you can see from the before and after photographs, the girls all look fantastic in their newly purchased kit! John Drysdale from the club commented “Without the Growing the Game award we wouldn’t have been able to set up this new team in the first place. We are most grateful for the funding provided by the SFP Trust and Clydesdale Bank which has allowed lots of girls from the local community to participate in football.”
