A LOCAL football team has scored a great result after securing a cash boost from Hastings Police.

JC Tackleway under 11s received £300 from the Police Property Act Fund which re-uses cash and other assets seized from criminals for the good of the local community.

Sergeant Simon Yates (pictured) and PC Alan Heath helped the club apply for the cash and Sgt Yates braved the pouring rain to hand over the cheque at the team’s weekly training session.

PC Heath said: “I’m so pleased the money from the Police Property Act Fund has been used in such a positive way. The £300 will be used to buy new equipment for the team.”
