Dryburgh Athletic Community Club from the Scottish FA East Region 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 fantastic grassroots club provide activity for 18 teams playing fun fours all the way through to full 11-a-side games with the help of over 50 coaches who give their time willingly to their local football club. Dryburgh have chosen to use their grant to create and subsequently grow their new 2015 boys section with John Beatt from the club commenting “Dryburgh Athletic Community Club would like to thank The SFP Trust and the Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust for awarding us a Club Development Grant. This grant will be invaluable in the creation and sustainability of our new 2015 boys’ side. This generous donation will enable us to supply quality kit and equipment for our next generation of Burgh Ballers.”
