BUDDING football stars are dressing for success after a donation helped them to buy matching jackets for their team.
Members of the Helsby Junior Football Club’s Under 13s team used £500 donated by Weaver Vale Housing Trust to buy the new jackets in their club colours.
The team, who are based at the Frodsham Leisure Centre and play their home games at The Saltworks in Frodsham, received the money as part of the trust’s Community Assistance Fund.
Co-manager of the club Peter Merrill said: “The funding from the Trust has been a real boost to the club. We have a lot of running costs so we really appreciate the support they have shown us.
“The jackets look really great and the lads are already wearing them with pride.”
The football club needs more than £1,000 every season to keep going, but members of the Trust said they were more than happy to support the club with their good work within the community.
Organisations can apply for grants of up to £500 from the Trust by calling Karen Cromwell on 01606 813422.
