Almondbury Lions JFC has been an established Junior football club for the last 15 years.
My sons team are the last team for the club. I have just taken over as secretary and treasurer as well coaching my sons team. Within the community there are no other teams and people will have to travel to play football. I want to bring football back to the community and start youth teams and build our club. In order to that we need funding for kit and equipment. In addition to that we have no fixed club area and we have to rent sites both for summer and for winter when we need floodlights. I want to run some free sessions for various age groups and try get young boys/girls back into the club.
My long term aim is to get some land we can call our own and build our club there. By crowdfunding for the initial boost of equipment then we can get the numbers back into the club and be re established and then in years to come can look to secure more sizeable grants to develop the club/pitch/lighting.
