Aspiring football stars have been given a boost thanks to a sponsorship deal with Bristol Street Motors Peaugot dealership in Worksop.
Retford United Girls Under 10s and Worksop Town Under 16 Boys will be able to purchase new kits and equipment with the cash.
Andy Brown, general manager of Bristol Street Motors Peugeot Worksop, said: “We are delighted to be supporting local sports clubs as it will help young people in the area develop their skills in a productive way.”
“It is important to support local clubs and causes in any way that we possibly can.”
“I hope the new football kits and training equipment make a huge difference to both the Worksop Town Tigers and the Redford United Girls.”
“Everyone here at Bristol Street Motors Peugeot Worksop wishes both clubs all the best going forward.”
Retford United Girls are managed by Scott Mowbray, a 15-year veteran of local football, who works at Bristol Street Motors in Chesterfield.
Mowbray’s girls play in the Notts Girls and Ladies League.
He said: “We’re very grateful for the sponsorship money from the dealership, which will really help the club.”
“The price of gear nowadays means it is difficult for the club to afford it, so we are really appreciative of Peugeot Worksop for supplying the club with this money.”
Denise Marsh formed the Worksop team in 2003.
She said: “I am a firm believer that having children involved in sports clubs teaches them vital social skills and discipline, which will put them in good stead for the future, and the dealerships’ help ensures that the team can last and these values will continue to be taught.”
