Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - READER TRAVEL -

Sol­way Sharks ju­nior play­ers look re­ally cool af­ter they re­ceived a wel­come cash boost from Tesco Peel Cen­tre.

The £500 they re­ceived has been used to pur­chase train­ing tops for a new ini­tia­tive, Sol­way Su­per Sun­days, which is held on the last Sun­day of ev­ery month at Dum­fries Ice Bowl.

The day sees a short train­ing ses­sion fol­lowed by a se­ries of small area games and is open to all reg­is­tered play­ers un­der the age of 10.

The past two ses­sions have seen a healthy at­ten­dance of play­ers from all over Scot­land, in­clud­ing el­i­gi­ble kids from the Sol­way Sharks.

Any­one in­ter­ested can get more in­for­ma­tion from the Sol­way Su­per Sun­days face­book page.

Sol­way Sharks un­der 10s and 12s team man­ager Si­mon Howat said: “We are de­lighted to re­ceive this fund­ing from Tesco Peel Cen­tre Dum­fries, as it has en­abled us to pur­chase train­ing tops for the ses­sions, and they look re­ally smart.

“It makes it so much eas­ier for the coaches to get the kids used to team work if they are all in the same colour top.

“All the play­ers like to feel in­volved and be­ing able to mix play­ers from dif­fer­ent clubs into each team means they get to make new friends while hav­ing fun and sharp­en­ing their on-ice skills.

“We are very grate­ful to Tesco for their gen­er­ous sup­port which also in­cludes sup­ply­ing fruit so that the pay­ers can re­fuel af­ter their hard work with a healthy snack.”
