WITH the annual BBC Children In Need television appeal hitting our screens this Friday, November 18, the Gazette this week spoke to a Carluke football club which is one of its many beneficiaries.

Milton Rovers FC, based at Burn Road, has received £3000 from Children In Need in each of the past two years and will receive a third payment for this amount in 2012.

This £9000 total – a funding amount matched by the club – will see a total of £18,000 supporting Milton Rovers’ Sporting Chance programme, paying for 15 to 18-year-olds to each do voluntary coaching at the club for nine hours a week.
