SCHOOLGIRL footballers will be able to get a kick out of the sport thanks to a £1,500 charitable grant.

The PE Department at John Kyrle High School in Ross-on-Wye was contacted by the Adam Stanford Foundation offering new football equipment.

The foundation was set up in memory of former Hereford United player Adam Stanford, who died of bowel cancer.

The aim of the foundation is to “help give young people the unique opportunity to develop life skills, through the power of football” as well as raise awareness of the disease.

Football has always been part of the boys’ curriculum at John Kyrle, but after a review of the whole curriculum which students were a part of, football is now also in the girls’ curriculum and an extra-curricular club is run weekly by Louise Rowberry-Wall.

A school spokesperson said: “JKHS would like to say thank you very much to the Adam Stanford Foundation for their generosity and the students will make good use of the equipment bought with the donation.
