A north-east football team looks poised to join the “sundae league” after scooping a donation from a north-east ice cream maker.
The firm made the gesture after learning that the women’s and girls’ sides were sharing kits.
Head of PE Brian Cruickshank welcomed the “very generous” contribution.
He said: “Just having the one set wasn’t ideal, it meant the girls couldn’t train or have matches at the same time and it was an all-round inconvenience.
“With this very generous donation we don’t have to worry about these logistical complications.”
