A Gorebridge football team has received a much-needed financial boost from a local housing developer. The donation to Hunterfield BC 94s by Persimmon Homes will help fund essential training equipment for the team.

The U-19’s football team, who are on track to win the Edinburgh League, train at Arniston Park, just a few metres from Persimmon’s Dewar Park housing development.

Head coach Colin Quinn said: “We are very grateful to Persimmon Homes for supporting the team. We are a self-funded club and it’s donations like this that help to keep the club going.”

Persimmon Homes East Scotland’s sales director Lorraine Clelland said: “As a company we strive to support local talent and community projects where we can.”
