Huge boost for the Oxford Saints Women’s Team
The Oxford Saints are excited to announce that the club has been successful in securing a grant for the women’s team.
Following a detailed application process, Sport England has awarded the sum of £8,440 to the team which was founded in May 2016.
The grant money will be used for helmets, shoulder pads, uniforms and other training equipment to help them develop and prepare for their first contact tournament.
Club chairman Graeme Taylor said:
“We are delighted that we have been awarded a Sport England Small Grant! We have been very fortunate to have such a great group of ladies come together and join the Saints family, and securing the funding needed to get them started with contact football is a just reward for all of their efforts.”
“We are looking forward to getting the team kitted out and can’t wait to see them in their first Sapphire Series tournament!”
