Field Lane F.C awarded Football Foundation Grant
Our players are set to benefit from fresh investment into local football facilities. Field Lane F have been awarded a grant from the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation, to upgrade their facility.
The Football Foundation is the UK’s largest sports charity and exists to improve the experience of playing football for everyone, by championing fair access to quality facilities.
This grant will enable us to purchase new goalposts for our home pitches
This will represent a significant improvement on the existing goalposts which were in need of renovation as the securing clips and channels have become damaged over the years.
Field Lane worked with the Football Foundation and the Derbyshire County FA to secure a substantial grant towards the project.
Lee Farthing Club Secretary, said: “Football makes a huge difference to the players, coaches and community here. We see first-hand the impact on players’ confidence, physical health and mental focus. To receive this funding from the Premier League, The FA and the Government through the Football Foundation means a lot to us, as it will help us to improve grassroots sport in the area and get even more people involved in the nation’s favourite game.”
Robert Sullivan, Interim Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said: “We know the huge benefits playing regular football can have on individuals’ physical and mental well-being. That’s why we’re committed to transforming the face of grassroots football facilities in this country. It’s therefore very welcome news to hear that this funding will support insert club/organisation name in developing insert work being done or what the facility is for their local community.
“Working with our partners – the Premier League, The FA, government and Sport England – we will be investing in over £1bn worth of local facilities across the country over the next decade. We believe we can transform lives and strengthen communities by unlocking the power of pitches and this is another project that brings us closer to that ultimate goal.”
