The Club is delighted to have been successful with two recent grant applications to the Football Foundation. A grant from the Pitch Preparation Fund will go towards paying for materials and services will help ensure that our pitches are match-fit, now that it is safe to play football again following Government advice. The Club has also been awarded a grant from the Foundation’s Club Preparation Fund to prepare to safely reopen in line with Government guidance around hygiene and social distancing.
John Duchars, Club Chairman writes “We really appreciate the support of the Football Foundation. Our revenue from normal streams such as the bar and coffee shop have come under pressure over the last few months, so the grants will make a real difference during these challenging conditions.”
The Football Foundation is a charity funded by the Premier League, The FA and the Government, through Sport England that exists to help provide quality infrastructure at the lower levels of the game. Visit footballfoundation.org.uk for more information on the Foundation.
