A YOUTH football team have been given a boost thanks to a local housing association.

At the start of the month, Janet Strang, the Chairperson of Cunninghame Housing Association presented a cheque for £500 to Kilwinning Rangers 2011’s and 2012’s to assist with the purchase of new training kits.

She told the Times: “We are delighted to be able to support young local football teams who provide opportunities for young people to develop their fitness and skills.”

The association’s community fund is now fully exhausted and will re-open on 1st April 2020.
