Our 2022 Club Development initiative, supported by our long-standing partner, the Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust, was set up by the Scottish Football Partnership Trust to invest in the development and growth of 60 Scottish FA Quality Mark Clubs with a particular focus on increasing and enhancing participation opportunities for players and the development of coach volunteers at grassroots level.
Falkirk Foundation were one of the last recipients of funding from this scheme which has now come to a close. The Foundation chose to use their funding to continue with their Midnight League programme which was piloted the previous year. Chris Gunn, Business Operations Manager commented “The Midnight Leagues have been a great success on a Friday night in the Falkirk area. The Falkirk Foundation deliver these sessions with funding from The Scottish Football Partnership Trust and Cashback for Communities. These sessions are for those aged 12-17 and rather than wandering the streets, it gives this age-group some activity and enjoyment on a Friday evening and keeps them engaged. We are most grateful for the support given to these young people.”
