A cheque for £500 has been presented to the under-12 girls from Stevenage Boro Juniors by Sainsbury's at Corey's Mill.
The store, in Hitchin Road, has donated the money to the club to provide a new home kit for the girls.
Coach and team manager Danielle Quelch said: "The girls are currently top of the table in Division Two of the Home Counties Girls' League.
"They have also progressed to the quarter-finals of the league cup by beating two Division One teams in the group stages. The new kit will be a big boost for the team."
