Port Talbot were fourth in the WPWL table when the season was brought to a premature end and are anxious to start plans and preparations for the 2020-21 season, even though the new fixture list has yet to be drawn up.
With no matches to target as yet, they are intent on getting back into as near as normal training mode at their temporary Vivian Park training ground.
That location is being used while their regular facility, Ysgol Bae Baglan, awaits re-opening.
When they get back on the pitch at their Victoria Road Stadium for their opening match remains to be seen, but until then Hayley is determined the players can feel fully supported.
“There has been some uncertainty about how training might work, but we are getting over that and the grant has really helped with those concerns.
“The application process was very straightforward and to know that we can afford to get things in place was a big relief.
“We are entirely self-funded as a club. We don’t have a major sponsor or a backer, we live on our own players’ contributions, so costs are always something we need to keep an eye on.
“With that peace of mind, we can now look forward to the future and to playing again.”
