Park Sports Project from The Scottish FA West region were recently granted an award of £500 from The SFP Trust’s 2019 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.
Park Sports who deliver football coaching and games to players of all ages and abilities from their base in Glasgow were delighted to receive this funding which they will use to develop their Games Programme (outdoors and indoors) in which players from the club can access more opportunities to take part in structured games under the supervision of club coaches. Alan Sharp from Park Sports commented on the award by saying “The funding we have received from The Scottish Football Partnership Trust will allow us to further develop our Community Football Programme at Park Sports Project. The money will be used to ensure that we can continue to create and promote football in a fun, safe, exciting and learning environment for players, parents and coaches. Our grateful thanks go to The SFP Trust and the Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust for this award.”
