A newly formed youth American Youth Football Club based in Maidstone has benefitted from a £900 KCC members grant from Paul Carter, Eric Hotson and Brian Clark towards a new kit and training for the coaching team.
The Kent Phoenix Youth American Football club was born out of a desire to teach and expand the UK game.
They provide young people from Kent with an opportunity to take part and enjoy the sport, from its grass roots in under 11’s cadet and under 14’s flag football moving up to under 17’s fully kitted football.
Ina Miles one of the coaches at the club said: “With the players looking fantastic we approached KCC Councillors Brian Clark Eric Hotson and Paul Carter who kindly agreed to award the Phoenix £300 each in order for us to purchase uniforms for our coaching staff.
“This money was provided through the KCC Members Grant award scheme and we are hugely grateful to them for their support” .
