Young athletes could be boosted in their path to elite levels by receiving a training grant.

A kitty of £400,000 is up for grabs for youngsters in South Oxfordshire and GLL Sport Foundation is inviting talented athletes to apply for funding between £250 and £1,500.

This can be spent on training, travel and equipment during the next 12 months, or for training awards allowing free access to selected sports facilities.

To be eligible for a grant, applicants must have the long-term potential to succeed at international level.
