Ants Ladies receive Lottery Award from local MP

The Ants Ladies team were recently successful in our application for funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to help assist us with the creation of not only the Ladies first team but also to help kick start our age group girls teams as well, giving us much needed support for Coach Education, training lets, kit and equipment. We are delighted that the fund have seen what benefits of the ladies and girls section of the club can give to the local community and we can’t wait to see how the project grows over the coming weeks and months.

Ants Ladies Club Secretary Martin McKenna was delighted to receive the news of the award. “The Ants ladies set up is a big part of how we see the future of the club and we want to attract local girls to the club to help improve

overall fitness and to help them grow as footballers as well as young people. We are delighted to receive this much needed funding to help us get started on building the ladies and girls section of the club”.

Local MP Chris Stephens came along to McKenna Park yesterday where the Queen Ants were showing off their new McKenna Digital Media sponsored home and away kits, to hand over a presentation cheque to the club. Speaking to the Ants website Chris said “It was a pleasure to visit McKenna Park and present the Women’s Team with a cheque from the Lottery for kit,

training let’s, coach education and other costs to help establish the team. Womens football is growing rapidly and I am delighted that St.Anthonys are putting a team together. Going forward I am looking forward to working with St.Anthonys and assisting their work with the wider community”

The future looks bright for the Queen Ants and its a big thank you to the National Lottery Awards for All for the award
