Port Glasgow Juniors Community Sports Club, a fantastic ever-growing community club from The Scottish F.A. West Region, were delighted to be awarded funding of £500 from the SFP Trust’s 2018 Club Development Grant scheme. The initiative, funded by the SFP Trust in partnership with The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust and The Clydesdale Bank 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.
Port Glasgow Juniors, who have over 300 players across 16 different age-levels, opted to use their award to support coach education for ten of their volunteer coaches, including Heather McImoyle and Adam Green. Margaret Vize from the club was most grateful for the award and commented “Heather and Adam recently went through their level 1.2 grassroots coaching for youth players and this will assist our club next season when Heather will coach the Under-11s and Adam will be coaching the Under-13s girls at competitive level. Without funding from The SFP Trust in partnership with The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust and Clydesdale Bank, this wouldn’t have been possible and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again.”
