BUDDING athletes can apply for funds to help with their training over the next five years.

Bexley council launched the Sporting Best five years funding programme last year and are now looking for new athletes to fund. To apply for funding, youngsters have to be over 14, live in the borough and provide evidence from their sports governing body that they are competing at national or international level. Leisure councillor Peter Catterall said: "This programme goes some way to easing the burden of those costs, allowing young people to concentrate on what they do best."

The decision on each application will be made by a panel made up of former international sports people, a representative from Coca-Cola, a member of the Bexley sports community and councillors. For details or an application form, email: or call Nadine Wooldridge on: 020 8294 6987. The deadline for applications is 31 July.
