A YOUTH football club who are breeding players for professional teams have praised the Record's Kits for Kids promotion.

Wishaw Wycombe Wanderers under-15s are hoping to build on their success by saving up tokens for new outfits for next year.

Kits for Kids, in association with Lloyds TSB Scotland, are giving teams the chance to collect for FREE football kit, FREE rain jackets and FREE training bags.

Wanderers secretary Stuart Dickson, 43, whose 15-year-old son Stephen plays left-back, said: "The Kits for Kids promotion is fantastic, I can't praise it highly enough.

"In the past, we have had full kits for the boys and it would be great to get enough tokens for that again, or for new bags. It is a massive help for the club because fundraising is always tough.

"The team have been doing well and we have a great track record of producing top players. In the last few years, we have sent nine players on to train with professional clubs.

"We have had boys go on to Celtic, Airdrie, Clyde, Motherwell and Dunfermline."

Football fans Charlie Sullivan and John Stewart formed Wanderers in 1994 after Lanarkshire was devastated by the loss of Ravenscraig.

Stuart added: "Credit to them, because what they started has become massive."

Wanderers have teams from under-8s to under-17s and have more than 220 registered players - boys and girls - from throughout Lanarkshire.
