Bo’ness United Community F.C. recently received a £500 grant from The SFP Trust’s 2020 Club Development Grant scheme. The initiative, funded by the SFP Trust in partnership with The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust, was developed to assist grassroots clubs in three specific areas – to increase participation by adding a new team to a club’s existing membership; to improve, enhance and sustain existing team activity through the purchase of new training equipment and/or funding First Aid training for coaches or thirdly to support Coach Education.
This vibrant grassroots club who provide activity from fun fours to 11-a-side games for 240 boys and 63 girls chose to use their award to purchase new training equipment for their new 2015 boys section and their Under-7 girls’ section. Peter Hay from the club said “We are delighted to once again be supported by this Scottish Football Partnership Trust initiative, which allows the club to continue to invest in the children and allow them to have a great experience with Bo’ness United CFC when they are at our training and playing in our matches. We must thank all at the SFP Trust, The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust and Gary Doctor at the Scottish FA Central Region for this most valuable support.”
