A real family effort has helped kit out Market Rasen Town Under 16s for their new league season.

Young Caitlin Carr, daughter of team coach Steve, manned a cake stall every Saturday of her school summer holidays to raise money to buy new training jackets.

She sold cakes and pastries made by her aunt Janice Tappenden, who runs Lils Cakes in Oxford Street, as well as flowers grown by her granddad and raised £380.

The team lies eighth in the Lincolnshire Co-Op Mid Lincs Under 16s C League after a 4-1 defeat at runaway leaders Welton last weekend.

On Sunday they host Grantham Flames at Rase Park (kick-off 2.15pm).
