FACILITIES at two Suffolk clubs have received financial aid from the Football Foundation.
Framlingham Town Youth FC have received a grant of £5,610 towards goalposts and floodlights costing a total of £9,108.
Needham Market FC have been awarded £5,606 for the refurbishment of a storage area and new fencing. The overall cost of the project is £7,506. The 3G facility at Needham Market is pictured above following the official opening in July 2019.
Suffolk FA Football Development Manager Jodie Allard said: “Anyone involved in grassroots football understands how challenging it can be for clubs to generate the funding needed to develop their facilities for members, and so it’s pleasing to see so many benefit from the support made available to them by the Football Foundation.
“The message from the Football Foundation, which is funded by the FA, Premier League and Sport England, is that they are very much open for business during this challenging time, which is promising news for the local football community.
“The team at Suffolk FA are working with clubs to support them to apply for funding which is available to them and we would encourage any clubs who would like more information to get in touch.”
