My name is Oliver White and I am currently studying a degree in Football Business & Marketing at UCFB Wembley. Using knowledge and skills from this course I am starting a new Sunday League football team near Southampton, but i'm quickly learning that this isn't easy.
With everything from player insurance, to football kits, to a first aid kit on my shopping list, player fees simply can't cover the cost of starting a new team.
Finance is a huge barrier for people to overcome when it comes to grass roots sport in the community. Your money will help the club pay for an array of necesseties including:
- Affiliation to the Hampshire FA
- Registration with the league
- Pitch Hire
- First aid kit
- First aid training
- And of course, probably the biggest expense... KITS
So I'm afraid there's nothing glamorous to invest in with our club, but I know that your donations will be valued greatly by every member because without your money, the club will not be able to start up and survive providing opportunities in grass roots football for years to come.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our campaign, your donations couldn't be recieved more gratefully!
