Bungay Town FC's young players are extremely grateful to Ray Rookyard and Simon Playford of Bungay School of Motoring (pictured standing at the back) who have paid for their training balls this season.

Jon Fuller, chairman, said: “Modern football coaching methods encourage each child to access to a football during training sessions. It is no longer acceptable to just throw a ball into a crowd of kids and let them play a game.

“One hundred and seventy young footballers require 170 footballs of varying sizes, which is obviously a significant cost every year.

“Any support we receive from local business during these economic times is gratefully accepted, but this donation from the Bungay School of Motoring relieves a huge financial headache.”

Simon Playford said: “It has

been really nice to see the kids at Bungay Football Club, playing with the balls we provided.

“Football was always my favourite pastime as a youngster, there were not as many computers or games consoles around then.

“So it's really good to see these youngsters keeping active. Myself and Ray, are very happy to have been asked to sponsor Bungay Town FC again.

“Being a local driving school, its good to be involved with a local football team.”
