Loanhead Miners Youth F.C. were extremely pleased to receive an award from The SFP Trust’s Growing the Game initiative. The funding was used to purchase kit and training equipment for the new team and as you can see from the above photograph, the girls all look fantastic in their new strips. Peter Frame from the club commented “We are most grateful to both the SFP Trust and the Clydesdale Bank for this funding, without which it would have been almost impossible for us to set-up this new girls section.”
