Alyth Amateurs Football Club are representing the town in style with new home strips funded by a grant from ADT’s Community Projects Fund.
The Club bought new strips two years ago, but while the away strip tops are still in good condition the home strips were very tired and the numbers were starting to peel off. The pandemic of the last two years restricted the Club’s fund-raising leaving them short of money.
A grant of £750 from the Community Projects Fund allowed the Club to buy new home strips in time for the 2022/23 football season, so they now look their best at home games in Division 1 of the Perthshire League.
Jenni Milne of AAFC said: “All our players are from Alyth and surrounding areas and are very proud to part of the community, so to have a kit that was looking old and tatty was not very motivating for them or for their loyal supporters. The new strips mean they can represent the Alyth community at home games with new pride and determination.”
ADT’s Community Projects Fund distributes the community benefit income donated to the town by Temporis Ltd, operators of the Tullymurdoch Wind Farm just north of Alyth. Grants are decided by an independent panel of Alyth people. More info here: https://lovealyth.org.uk/projects/alyth-community-projects-fund/
