Future football stars from the Ardrossan Winton Rovers 2011 team were delighted to receive their new kits.

The children received the kits following an innovative initiative by the club in an attempt raise funds.

The 2011 side were only formed in April this year and launched a scratch card for local businesses to enter to with the winner becoming the team’s sponsor.

Many local businesses took part in the fundraising exercise with each paying £20.

The club said the children were “over the moon” to have received their new outfits and are looking forward to playing in them as they continue to gain experience since their creation.

In addition, the club also wanted to thank sponsor Gassure and all the local businesses that entered.
