Best and worst-funded sports revealed

The Department of Education, Sport and Culture says lawn bowls is the best-funded sport on the Island, while football is the worst.

A Freedom of Information request asked how much the department spent on each sport this year and how many registered members those sports have.

Lawn Bowls' 60 registered members received £3,160 - £52.67 per member.

Meanwhile, football's 3,903 registered members were given £5,000 - which works out at £1.28 each.
