The Hampton Park Junior Football Club is set to don new uniforms after receiving a $1,000 grant from the Andrews Labor Government.

State Labor Member for Narre Warren South Judith Graley visited the club to share the good news with players and their families earlier this week.

As part of the Sporting Uniform Grants Program, the club will be able to replace their old kits with new uniforms, including team tops, shorts, socks and footy boots.

The Sporting Uniform Grants Program alleviates some of the costs associated with grassroots sport, taking the pressure off local families and encouraging them to live active and healthy lifestyles.
