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.
Stirling Albion Junior Academy 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. Grant Morrice, Junior Academy Chairperson said; “We are very grateful to both the KFCT and The Scottish Football Partnership Trust for their support. My Club Hub enables us to easily monitor monthly fee payments and has already realised real financial benefits from unrealised memberships. We expect other operational benefits too. It’s quick and easy for our coaches to access emergency contacts and medical information through the app which is great especially when parents aren’t always present at the moment.”
