Loanhead Miners Youth Football Club girls’ team received new kits courtesy of Specsavers Opticians & Audiologists in Straiton Sainsbury’s this month.

The £600 investment from the store covered the cost of the purchase of team kits, which the players have debuted in their match against Boroughmuir Thistle Purples.

Specsavers store Manager Roni, says: ‘Since opening our doors here in Loanhead last year, we’ve been looking for opportunities to show our support for our local community. ‘Loanhead Miners Youth Football Club offers wonderful opportunities for children interested in the sport, and we hope the new sponsored shirts become a lucky charm for the girls when they’re out on the pitch.’ To book an eye examination, visit the store at Sainsbury’s Straiton Mains, Straiton, Loanhead, call 01313 576 551 or visit
