The Scottish Football Partnership Trust and the Crerar Hotels Trust have teamed up to support the provision of new goalposts for 7 grassroots community football clubs in the North of Scotland.
One of the first clubs to receive a set of Fun four goalposts is West End F.C who are a Scottish F.A. Quality Mark accredited club from Aberdeen. This type of initiative is key to the development of football in Scotland as it supports the youngest age groups of kids who are just starting out their journey in the game.
West End F.C. secretary David Duncan had this to say about the funding received “As you can see the lads have had a great time at training this evening. This is their first season and the players have only been working together since January. Our new goals will allow us to train anywhere when the weather gets better and allow our young players to practise into the goals they will be using when they start taking part in football festivals in the season ahead. We very much appreciate the award from The Scottish Football Partnership Trust in conjunction with Crerar Hotels Trust. This type of support is vital to grassroots clubs like ourselves as it allows us to continue to start new age groups and reduces the financial burden on the club and its coaches, players and parents”.
