Upping the score at Larkhall FC

A little reminder of how community spirit and local pride – wrapped up with sport – is very much a  part of our shared city heritage.

Larkhall Football Club is celebrating its centenary this year – 2014 – and currently running twelve football teams – with youngsters starting at the age of six.

Local Independent councillor Dave Laming has now provided sponsorship to allow the Club to get involved with Project 28 – a small charitable association that apparently truly cares for youngsters between the ages of seven and seventeen who have lost their way through substance or alcohol abuse – either directly or through third party influence.

Cllr Laming is pictured here with Larkhall Football Club and Project 28 officials, the Chairman of B&NES, Cllr Martin Veal, and the Project 28 stripe – to celebrate the new connection. The team won 3 – 1 in their first game too!
