A step up for local girl's football

Cheque Handover

Last August the girls and coaching staff at Dalry Rovers FC, who play their games at Kilwinning Academy Campus, received a £2,500 to help meet the cost of training equipment and kit, just before their players prepared to meet their biggest challenge yet.

Four years after its formation, the club announced in December that amalgamation with nearby Kilbirnie would see the formation of Garnock Valley FC in order to compete in the full- scale 11-a-side game.

Diane Wood, Community Benefits Director at Community Windpower, said: “The club’s sole source of income comes from parents’ monthly subs, so we did not hesitate when deciding to contribute towards new kits and training equipment to help the girl’s development.

Robert Barr, Chair of the Dalry Parish Boundary Trust, stated: “Encouraging our young sportspeople is important to everyone at the Trust.

“The team that finished third in their league from a standing start and with Girls, many of whom had not played competitively before speaks volumes of their ability and the effort from the coaches.

“This donation fits well with our aims of everyone reaching their full potential, while enjoying playing sport and remaining fit and healthy. Who knows there might be a future Scottish World Cup star taking to the park in their new colours”.

Announcing the move on Facebook the club paid tribute to local and financial backers, including the Trust and Community Windpower.
