TSB Fraserburgh has been helping local schools get match-ready for the new season by donating free quality match footballs.
The TSB football giveaway, which rewards schools affiliated to the Scottish Schools’ FA, will see over 300 secondary and primary schools receive five FIFA approved match balls - and Fraserburgh Academy is just one of those which is set to benefit from the scheme.
Broch Academy PE teacher David Forbes accompanied four academy pupils to collect their new footballs from the TSB Fraserburgh branch recently.
It is hoped the new equipment will help to keep schools playing organised football, a vital part in the physical development of thousands of pupils across Scotland.
Commenting, Nick Bansal from TSB Fraserburgh said he is proud of the role the bank is playing in supporting local communities.
He said: “We are delighted to present Fraserburgh Academy with their new footballs. Good quality equipment is vital to the on-going enjoyment of sport and we hope our match balls can play a small part in nurturing young footballing talent in communities across Scotland.”
Fraserburgh Academy teacher David Forbes commented: “I’d like to thank TSB for their kind donation of footballs on behalf of Fraserburgh Academy.”
The match ball giveaway is just one of the ways that TSB is helping schools in its role as partner of the Scottish Schools’ Football Association.
The bank already operates a travel fund offering funding support to schools competing in TSB competitions. New playing kits are also provided to all competition finalists, as are official team buses for the schools.
