A girls' football team that plays its matches at Inch Park in the south of Edinburgh has just secured its first ever team sponsor and will now play its games with the name of the local shopping centre on its new strips.

The Red Pandas U12s are the latest team from the very popular and successful Edinburgh South CFC organisation that have received sponsorship from the Cameron Toll Community Fund.

Gael Cochrane from the Red Pandas said “The team has never had a team sponsor so receiving this £600 award from the Cameron Toll Community Fund is wonderful and the players are so excited. As a group they are really progressing and their new kits adds to that.”

Claire Jefcoate, centre manager at Cameron Toll added: “Inch Park is such a vibrant place with lots of sports teams playing there and we’ve been delighted to be able to support many of them through our Community Fund. The Red Pandas also train at Drum Park so they’re right in the heart of the community. Good luck to all the players in all their games.”

The Cameron Toll Community Fund has also awarded funding to a number of other community initiatives recently including £500 of Waterstones vouchers for Liberton Primary’s school library and £500 to Eskvalley Model Engineering Society.
