Notts County’s academy continues to benefit from the club’s Lifeline membership scheme.Lifeline, which allows fans to pay a small sum each week to be in with a chance of winning a variety of prizes, has donated more than £1,000 to the academy for the second year running, allowing them to buy new training equipment for 2016-17 season.
Each age group will now have brand-new footballs, cones and training equipment to ensure the players have the best chance of developing in their sessions throughout the week.
Academy manager Mick Halsall said: “The academy is very grateful for Lifeline’s donation and their continued support.
“New equipment, especially footballs, is vital every season to give the players the best opportunity to train and play to the best of their ability.
“The sight of fresh footballs is always a great feeling at the start of the season, which really helps to spark everyone’s enthusiasm for the coming year.”
Lifeline coordinator Lynn Lawson added: “Our youngsters are the future of Notts County and that is what Lifeline is all about. If we can aid their training sessions in any way, we are happy to do so.
“Our members have helped to raise these additional funds and are delighted to support our academy.
“If you would like to see more contributions towards our youth development, please sign up to Lifeline now – every little helps.”
