GOLDEN Square Junior Football Club’s development officer Ian Symons says a community grant from the Foundry Arms Hotel has been a welcome boost for the club.

As part of the Foundry’s community grant scheme the junior footy club received a donation of $3970.

All of which will be spent on providing better equipment, including more footballers for the club's young guns.

Symons said it was a generous donation by the Golden Square business.

“The money will help us to buy tackle bags and bags for the kids to practice overhead marking,” he said.

"It will be used to buy basic equipment.

“The football club can now provide improved training facilities and aids that will enhance the skill learning and experience of playing football at Golden Square.

“We are very grateful for this donation.”

Symons said the junior club was one of the biggest in the region, with more than 250 youngsters involved with footy each week.    

“We are also involved with the Auskick program, so the money will also be put towards creating a safe and friendly environment for the kids,” he said.

"It will be a great benefit for everyone involved with the club."
