Littletown FC has been awarded a grant from The FA’s Stay in the Game scheme to help aid the club’s retention of its adult male players, giving them the financial support to cover the costs incurred by grassroots clubs.
The Stay in the Game scheme is funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation, with grants of £750 awarded to existing clubs in order to boost financial sustainability and allow clubs to continue offering playing opportunities in organised football.
The grants can be used towards matchday and training facility hire and league affiliation costs as well as covering match day subs for individuals that aren’t able to afford their regular match fees.
Colin Cromack, Club Secretary, said: This funding from the Football Foundation will allow us to continue to provide football opportunities for local people. We have been doing this for the last 59 years and this help us to look forward to our 60th birthday and beyond.
