WFC announces establishment of Sporting Chance Support Fund

27 Apr

Following on from the recent club announcement of the reduction of fees of junior and youth footballers, the WFC committee is delighted to announce we have set up the Sporting Chance Support Fund, which has been set up to ensure members in financial difficulties are still able to play their part in our community club in 2023.

WFC is appealing to both our existing members as well as the local business community to support the fund, and donations can be made directly to the club.

These valuable funds will help provide fee support, equipment provision and ongoing costs to play throughout the 2023 season.

The Sporting Chance Support Fund would contribute towards specific essential items such as:

⁃ Nike Playing Apparel such as playing strips or football boots etc.

⁃ Junior / Youth Season Fees

The club’s aim is to sponsor as many young players through this fund, with the potential to sponsor more of our ever-increasing membership base should the generosity of our local community allow us to do so.

WFC Club President Conan McKinstry, aims to continue to explore ways to keep down the costs to join the club.

“Whilst the cost of operating the club continues to go up, we continue to recognise the financial strain on young families and the committee is exploring every avenue to make this a truly affordable and accessible sport for all through the variety of new initiatives we are running this season.”
