COUNCIL housing bosses have put cash into a scheme run by Doncaster Rovers to tackle anti-social behaviour.

St Leger Homes, the organisation which manages Doncaster’s 21,000 council houses, has donated £1,500 to support a football-based Kickz programme for young people in Balby.

Kickz is a national programme set up by the Premier League and run locally by Rovers’ community coaches.

The first phase of the scheme has involved free football coaching sessions at Balby Carr Community Sports and Science College.
