Tweedbank Thistle Youth Football Club players and coaches are all geared up for the second half of the Border League fixtures.
The club has recently been re-accredited as an SYFA Club Mark Club as well as being passed as a Borders Sport and Leisure Trust accredited club.
Tweedbank chairperson David Moffat told The Southern: “It’s great to have these accreditations as it proves we are ticking all the boxes and doing things the right way.
“As a club we always strive do the best we can so our players can play football in a happy, safe environment.
“Our aim is to ensure that all local kids can afford to play football and, thanks to our great sponsors, we are now able to offer all new players a training top, hoodie and jacket as well as strips for Saturdays and also offer existing players replacement kit at reduced, affordable prices.
“We also have a Boot Bank with old boots and shin guards for players to use, too.”
The club is always looking for new players and would welcome any child, no matter what ability, to go along and try their training for a couple of weeks to see if they enjoy it before joining.
