Project Details

Craigfelen Youth Football Team was set up to promote health and well being for its young people and better community relations in general. The team is made up of young players aged 12- 16 and open to all - even though they train on a school-based pitch. Craigfelen is in a Communities First area. Many of its young players would have difficulty finding extra cash for things like kit and equipment, and that tells most of all when they have to play away matches in the more affluent areas. They would like to be more involved in local matches but at present have no kit and limited training equipment, so it is difficult for them to participate fully in the league. It’s Your Community can see that whatever Craigfelen Youth Football Team lacks in material means it more than makes up for in team spirit, so we will pitch in with this award for the necessary training equipment.
