A talented footballer, who scored a hat trick on her debut for the Wales national team, has scored a cash boost from her hometown for training camps.

Arksey ace Hannah Cain, 14, is a Sheffield United Academy striker and Wales youth international.

She also attends England training camps. To help her in her bid for footballing glory, in-form footballer Cain has netted a £750 sponsorship boost from Doncaster Leisure Trust to help pay towards training costs.

Hannah said: “I am very grateful to the DCLT for supporting me in this way and investing in my future. The help and support from DCLT will benefit me in the most visible way by allowing me to attend training camps and covering my travel and equipment costs.

“My goal is simple - I plan on being the best I can be with commitment and dedication to my sports. I believe that means, not only as a member of my national team but also as a well-respected and contributing member of a team community whereby I can develop myself and also contribute to that of others. With the help of organisations likes DCLT I will hopefully succeed.

“Last year was my most successful season to date and I am looking forward to building on that over this season.”

Michael Hart, Chief Executive of DCLT, said: “Hannah is a fantastic ambassador for girl’s football and we are delighted to be supporting her.

“It is a pleasure to be supporting local sporting talent and enabling Hannah to attend football training camps to further her sporting career.

“Girl’s and women’s football is an exciting sport which is growing in popularity. Girl’s like Hannah are an inspiration to their peers and show what can be achieved with hard work and determination.

“We wish Hannah all the very best for the future and I am sure she has a great career in football ahead of her.”
