A TEAM of 58 parents and players from Ardrossan Winton Rovers 2013s team were delighted to be able to head down to Blackpool to take part in the Blackpool Cup.

The team have been fundraising for the past year to make this trip happen and with the help of parents, family, friends and local community they managed to turn their hopes into reality.

The club sent two teams down to England for the tournament who performed excellently over the course of the weekend, though unfortunately didn’t manage to bring any silverware home.

A club spokesperson said: “Their coaches and parents are so proud of every player that took part in this tournament.

“We are already looking to see what’s next for them.”

Congratulations from all at the Herald!
