Your story

Best wee team in Eddlewood.

Group introduction

We are a small community in Eddlewood with an amateur football team. Last year local mums and dads got together to create 3 football teams for ages born in 2009 2010 and 2011. The teams are run and coached by the mums and dads. I am the treasurer for my son's team 2010. The boys are coming on a treat but funds are very tight and we're constantly fundraising to pay for balls, strips, goals and league fees.

How would this funding have an impact on your community?

The whole community is now involved as these 3 teams have 60 boys in it and it's just brilliant to see them all training in our local park. The money would be divided between the 3 wee teams. It would help with fees strips balls nets and it would benefit 60 5, 6 and 7 year old boys. We could have a few professional football players in years to come.
