This is a local football club which is available to all. It not only offers football classes but also has a job club on site to help get people back in to work these people are referred from the local job centre. They have over 160 users per week. They also offer an outreach service to the local elderly and include children to their football club that have been excluded from others.
They have a portal cabin on the grounds of their pitch but have no security around the facilities and the local youths are going in with quad bikes and this is costing the club each time to repair pitch damage etc. The £9,498 will pay for secure fencing around the grounds and hopefully they can invest the savings to reach more people.
