Last updated at 13:02, Wednesday, 25 April 2012
The girls’ section of Workington Juniors FC has been given a helping hand with a £300 cheque from the News & Star Charitable Trust Fund.
The cash will be used to cover the cost of equipment and strips for the youngsters.
Coach Michael Tindall told News & Star Sport: “The club is currently running boys’ teams from under-eights to Under-18s and this year we have been trying to re-establish girls’ football at under-10.
“This enables the girls to learn at their own pace in a safe, un-pressurised environment, where the emphasis is on skills development and involvement without the win-at-all-costs competitiveness in boys’ football.
“At the moment we have 12 girls, aged from seven to 10 years old, who have been training regularly since last May.
“All the girls are given equal opportunities and are benefiting from regular exercise, teamwork and responsibility.”
