A £1,000 donation from The Women's Institute has paid for personalised training tops and t-shirts for Kilgetty AFC Women’s team.

The generous donation was given to the club last year, and the growing women’s team were pleased to receive their training wear, presented to them by Anne Pugh, WI vice president; Helen Clarke, WI secretary; and Kath Breen, WI president, who are pictured with the team and Coach James North on Sunday, March 5.

Kilgetty AFC wore their new training wear and also marked Fairtrade Fortnight as they faced Milford Athletic Ladies at Kingsmoor Sports Club on Sunday, March 5.

Warming up Kilgetty used Fairtrade footballs and the player's children had fun with a giant Fairtrade football too!

Kilgetty came out 3-1 winners, after working hard in the first half putting in a strong shift. Zoey Jones shone in her defensive performance, denying Milford’s forward pushes; as did Addie Rumble, Deanne North, and Maisie Sherratt, with their stone wall defence keeping the back tight.

Emma Clegg put Kilgetty in front in the 28th minute, with Lizzie Walsh doubling the lead in the 30th.

After a string of end-to-end passes, Kilgetty's Cara Williams scored the third in the 55th.

Milford put up a battle and Laura Edwards pulled a goal back in the 70th minute.

Fair Trade In Football Campaign founder, and Kilgetty AFC player and secretary, Sharron Hardwick, presented Milford Athletic Ladies with a Fairtrade Football and handed out Fairtrade Maltesers to her team too.

“Fairness is key here at Kilgetty AFC and we want to take this beyond the pitch to those who work hard making our footballs and growing our food by supporting Fairtrade,” said Sharron.

Thanks are expressed to volunteer referee, Ryan Coleman and Abigail Walsh for taking photographs.
