Two of Valley Rangers Football Club's teams now have smart new kits for matches thanks to a £1,217 grant from the Asda Foundation.

Our Kilkeel store's community champion Stephanie Rogers helped the club secure the funding, which has been spent on kits for the club's under 8s team and their team for autistic youngsters.

Head coach Neil Ardis said: "We would like to say a really big thank you to the Asda Foundation and to Stephanie for her help and support.

“Valley Rangers aims to improve the health and wellbeing of young people of all ages and abilities in the local area. Staying active is important for everyone – and through football, we are able to build the confidence of the children who take part, as well as foster lasting friendships and life skills."

Stephanie said: "The players show commitment week after week at training, so this is a fitting reward for their hard work and dedication."
