Two of Fenland’s sports clubs have received a generous donation to help provide new training equipment.

Wisbech St Mary Football Club and Whittlesey Cricket Club were donated £1,008 and £1,361 respectively as part of the Mick George Sports Fund.

Saints will use the money towards new training equipment, with Whittlesey opting to use the funds for a mobile net cage.

Both clubs were chosen in the first round of funding, where sports clubs and other beneficiaries across Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire were offered a sum of the £27,624 available.

Paul Albutt, secretary at Wisbech St Mary FC, said: “We are delighted as a club to have been successfully chosen for an award. The money will be spent on up grading certain training equipment within the football club.”

A spokesperson for Whittlesey Cricket Club said: “We will have a mobile net cage for training purposes and also for the school to use as and when things return to some sort of normality.”
