Kerrier United Girls Football Club, based in Pool, Redruth, was celebrating after being awarded a brand new football kit by the Football Foundation, the UK's largest sports charity.
The new Nike kit worth £400 was awarded to Kerrier United Girls Football Club, as part of the Foundation's Junior Kit Scheme. This provides new strips and equipment to teams across the country and is fronted by Arsenal and England star Theo Walcott.
The Football Foundation provides £1m worth of kit and equipment vouchers to junior clubs and schools, ensuring young players of all abilities have the best possible start in the game. Items available include a full strip, training bibs, balls, flags and kit bags - everything a young footballer needs to play the game. A female range is also now available to encourage girls to get involved in the game.
The Football Foundation is dedicated to revitalising the grass roots of the game, constructing modern football facilities, developing football as a force for social cohesion and as a vehicle for education in communities throughout the country. Funded by the Premier League, The Football Association, Sport England and the Government, the Football Foundation is the nation's largest sports charity with a £45m budget going straight into the heart of football.
Kate Luscombe, Coach of Kerrier United Girls Football Club said: "This grant has enabled us to obtain a new kit for our girls football club. Being a new club, our budget is very small and we had to borrow kit to get started. Thanks to the help of the Football Foundation we would have been able to get the girls all this brilliant new kit. We would like to thank the Football Foundation for this excellent grant and brilliant scheme, and Warren Parker of the Cornwall FA for supplying a kit for us to use while we applied for this grant."
If any girls are interested in joining the club, call (01209) 213267 for some more information.
