Tonbridge Angels' scoop £8,446 grant for their ladies' team

Thursday 07th April 2016

TONBRIDGE ANGELS have been awarded a grant of £8,446 from Sport England towards the development of its recently formed ladies team.

Launched last summer, spurred on by England’s Lionesses’ success finishing in third-place in the Women’s World Cup, significant progress has already been made with a number of friendly matches played during this season against local sides allowing team members to gain valuable experience.

Manager Dan Couldridge told “This is tremendous news for everyone involved and will allow the ladies team to really push on next season including participation in a league competition.

“I would like to thank Tonbridge Angels’ board for their involvement and to supporter Roger Maddams and Kent Sport who have provided expert advice.”
