I am playing for Houghton Athletics FC and having a lot of fun, all the players are a great bunch. We are doing very well in our league (some stats below). Just now we won the second cup final 7-1.
To keep the club going we need to raise funds. We do have some sponsors like Vauxhall, C.I.H Electrical Ltd, and other local companies that sponsored the shirts. We only pay a little contribution every month (£8-10). The aim is to give other boys the opportunity to join us without having to contribute a lot of money.
We need to raise money to cover insurance, admin costs, pitch fees (in the winter time we need to hire an Astro turf), training equipment (cones, balls, bips etc) and equipment for the games (goals,nets, match balls).
It would be great with your help to keep it going and growing with just a small contribution. In this time it becomes more and more important to get children active in sports (so they not only exercising their thumbs in their bedroom). With your help we can achieve this.
Here are some stats:
