Councillor Jan French allocated £300 from her charitable fund, which she uses to support various causes throughout the year, to the club.

Teilo Pearce, one of Estover Park’s coaches, thanked the mayor for her donation which he said would benefit the club’s four girls teams and boys team.

He said: “The goalposts cost £700 and we raised £400 from the Football Foundation.

“I asked around to see if anyone was willing to sponsor us and she offered the remaining money.
