We were also able to purchase new size four training and match footballs and a first aid kit and hope to shortly order some new goal posts for use on match days. We would like to thank both The Scottish Football Partnership Trust and The Clydesdale Bank for their support which helps ours and many other clubs develop grassroots teams in Scotland.”
