Young footballers will be able to play a more skilled-based game thanks to a charity donation.

Deeping St James United Charities awarded an £800 grant to Deeping Rangers Junior Football Club towards the purchase of new goalposts for the nine versus nine form of the game.

Young Deeping Rangers players will now be able to take part in matches with goalposts that are relative to their age and size.

The smaller forms of the game are part of the FA’s Youth Development Review, which aims to develop more technically-gifted English players. Research has shown that the game is more enjoyable for youngsters.

Deeping St James United Charities trustee Les Bullock said: “We are delighted to be helping such a great cause as Deeping Rangers. To see so many local children playing the game at this fabulous facility is great to see.”
