Youngsters slam dunk into new season following grant

YOUNGSTERS in the Wombwell and Darfield area will be able to carry on playing basketball next season following a grant of £750 from the Darfield Community First Fund.

The Barnsley Schools Basketball team, based at Netherwood ALC, will be able to keep running its four junior teams, the Darfield Dunkers, as the grant helps them with running costs.

Coach Bert Beaumont, 72, of Church Street, Darfield, said: "In order to charge as little as possible to the kids, we rely on grants such as this.
"It costs a lot to stage games and play fixtures but this will help us out."
