A FLINTSHIRE football club has joined the fight to raise awareness of abuse.

Saltney Town FC recently won a special Offside Trust football kit from a prize draw organised by Steve Walters.

Over 500 clubs nationally entered the draw to win the kit, by Boca Teamwear, which aims to raise awareness of abuse in football.

Steve Walters, co-founder of the Trust, said: "We held a prize draw which over 500 football clubs entered and Saltney won it, which seems weird because they are only five minutes from where I live.

"It's to raise awareness, that's the main thing.

"It was a national competition but we had international interest as well which was good to see."

Saltney Town FC wore the kit for the first time during their match with Holywell Town FC.

The aim is to raise awareness and funds for the Offside Trust which works to combat child abuse in sport and support the healing journey of survivors.

Former Crewe Alexandra professional Steve Walters, who lives in Wrexham added: "I was very pleased. I did notice that there were lots and lots of teams in and around North Wales who entered the competition which was nice to see.

"When this all came about, the football abuse back in November 2016, support from North Wales was there and it's fantastic that clubs are still showing their support.

"We at the Offside Trust are being recognised and doing important work, going to loads of football clubs and working with the FA, spreading the awareness.

"A big thank you to Boca and all of the teams who have been showing so much interest. We will be holding another prize draw soon."
