North Kelvin United 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 fantastic grassroots club from Glasgow who operate 12 teams for almost 180 children opted to use their grant to purchase new high-quality football goals to benefit all their teams, particularly the 5-a-side teams as they transition to 7-a-side football. Pauline Robertson from the club thanked the SFP Trust and the Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust for this award which will help benefit the development of all their players.
