Teviot Rangers JFC has received a £250 Team Sport Award from local electricity firm, UK Power Networks, for a new kit they will hope propels them to success for the new season. 

Coach, Dave Tume, who works as an electrical fitter helping to keep electricity flowing in his local area, nominated the club for his employer’s award.

Dave said: “It was great to be awarded the team sport award and the money will be used for a new kit for my U11 Team at Teviot Rangers JFC which is based in Plumstead.

“We train twice a week and play on Sundays in the local Selkent League. This cash boost is a real help as funding is hard to get at the moment, with covid not helping at all.

“I have been involved with Teviot Rangers for over 15 years and all my four sons have played for the club - two still do and my second son is my assistant coach.”

The Team Sport Award scheme is run by UK Power Networks to encourage staff to volunteer in the community and is aimed at promoting healthy living, teamwork and developing sports opportunities. In 2020, more than 60 local sports teams connected to UK Power Networks’ staff benefited from a share in £15,500.
