Milton Ladies FC’s super subs will be sporting new kit thanks to a little help from UK Power Networks.
 
The company, which delivers electricity to eight million customers across East Anglia, London and the South East through its vast infrastructure of overhead power lines, underground cables and substations, has given the club a much-needed £250 grant as part of its Team Sport Award programme.
 
It donated the money following an application from engineer Chloe Brown, who works at the company’s Bury St Edmunds offices and is a player and treasurer at the club.
 
Chloe, from Cambourne, said: “We’re very grateful for the UK Power Networks’ grant for this much needed kit. We’re putting towards buying a set of substitute suits so our subs can keep warm on the sideline in the winter. They will also will look more professional and distinguish from players on the pitch.
 
“We are a friendly team, always looking for new players – for the girls U16s and the women’s team. We are currently training alongside the girls U16 team, looking to encourage younger girls into football and also encourage progression into the women’s team where they can be mentored by current players.
 
Milton Ladies FC, who train at Sycamores Recreation Ground in Milton, are now in the 6th season and compete in the S-TECH Cambridgeshire women's league.
 
The company’s Team Sport Award scheme is designed to encourage staff to volunteer in the community and is aimed at promoting healthy living, teamwork and development of sporting opportunities.
 
Hundreds of community and sports groups have benefited from grants since the scheme was set up. Last year £13,000 was donated to sporting groups connected to UK Power Networks staff.
 
A new free number has been launched – you can call 105 if you have a power cut, to get through to your local network operator which runs the cables and power lines delivering electricity to your area.
