Items available include a

full strip, training bibs,

balls, flags and kit bags - everything a young footballer needs to play the game. A female range is also now available to encourage girls to get involved in the game.

The Football Foundation is dedicated to revitalising the grassroots of the game, constructing modern football facilities, developing football as a force for social cohesion and as a vehicle for education in communities throughout the country. Funded by the Premier League, The Football Association and the Government, the Football Foundation is the nation's largest sports charity with a £40m budget going straight into the heart of football.
