An Aberdeen football club is hoping to score a share of a cash grab to pay for new equipment.
The East End Lewis 2005 group has taught its players, some as young as five years old, the rules of the pitch and now it is hoping to land funds from CommunitEE Chest’s £15,000 cash pot.
The group, now in the under-14s category, is made up of groups from East End and Lewis United Youth which merged their youth football teams.
Anna Yeats, a parent of one of the players, said: “The team is always needing money for trips, equipment and referees. It just helps the club.
“We’re asking everybody, family and friends, to start helping us collect tokens.
“Last year we applied for CommunitEE Chest but the age group above us won.
“This year we hope that we can walk away with some of the money.”
The club of 16 boys meets to train at the Aberdeen East End pitches on Golf Road, and won the Regional Cup in the League A championships in May.
Anna added: “We are constantly trying to raise funds to pay for their pitch, training facilities; they also train twice a week at Oldmachar astroturf pitch, strips, kits and equipment for training.”
To be in with a chance of landing a share of the £15,000 prize money, all organisations which are registered must collect more than 100 tokens from the Evening Express.
Tokens can be collected every day.
