Ren­frew Boys Club 2005s are to be the first side to reap the re­wards of SMISA spon­sor­ship.

The lo­cal youth side en­tered the draw to re­ceive new kits for the up­com­ing sea­son, spon­sored by the St Mir­ren In­de­pen­dent Sup­port­ers As­so­ci­a­tion.

The Saints trust had set aside £700 of their kitty, com­ing from the £ 2 vot­ing pot pro­vided by mem­bers, to spon­sor a Ren­frew­shire-based youth side.

The sides were then put into a hat and a draw was made at St Mir­ren’s Ral­ston train­ing ground by man­ager Jack Ross.

‘Frew were the lucky side drawn out of the hat.

A SMISA spokesman ex­plained: “One of the projects our mem­bers voted to spend some of the £ 2 mem­bers pot from April was for SMISA to spon­sor a Ren­frew­shire­based youth team’s kits for the com­ing sea­son.

“We had a num­ber of teams put them­selves for­ward to go into the draw to re­ceive the £700 spon­sor­ship and the draw – con­ducted by Jack Ross this week – saw Ren­frew BC 2005s come out of the hat.

“The club will be able to spend the money on new kit which will carry a SMISA spon­sor’s logo and we will look to in­volve them with St Mir­ren where pos­si­ble.”

The trust are now plan­ning for next month’s spend, as well as work­ing be­hind the scenes to make sure that the pro­pos­als voted through last month are car­ried out be­fore the new sea­son gets started.

A spokesman added: “We are work­ing on the two other projects agreed as part of the April spend – the re­place­ment of the hall of fame boards in the ground, and a com­mu­nity sea­son ticket scheme – and will update on both soon.

“The July spend is al­most upon us and we have a num­ber of pos­si­ble projects we will be able to put be­fore you, with that email to come out in a cou­ple of weeks.

“If any­body has an idea they would like us to look into for pos­si­ble in­clu­sion in this or a fu­ture bal­lot, please send it to con­”
