Last year, The SFP Trust and The Kilpatrick Fraser Charitable Trust (KFCT) set-up a new innovative Club IT and Sustainability fund to support Quality-Mark accredited community clubs who were interested in using technology to aid their growth and development.
Grants of £500 have been awarded to part-fund the start-up costs of web-based club management systems which are designed to enable real financial, resourcing and administrative benefits, addressing many of the challenges club volunteers face on a day to day basis.
Barrhead Youth F.C. who are based in East Renfrewshire are the latest club to receive an award for ‘My Club Hub’ which is the club management system they have chosen to enhance their ongoing growth, development, sustainability, communication and governance strategies. Roslynn Davidson from the club said; “MCH has allowed us to set up registration for our newest teams quickly and easily by allowing us to email parents inviting their child to register and set up payments in a way that allows us to easily monitor monthly fee payments. Our coaches can access emergency contacts and medical information through the app which is also a great benefit for us.”
