St Albans City Youth FC thanks Verulam Golf Club for Becoming the Club’s Community Partner
St Albans City Youth FC are delighted to announce that Verulam Golf Club, St Albans, has agreed to become the Club’s Community Partner in an initial two-year agreement through to June 2023.
Verulam Golf Club is based on London Road, near to the heart of our magnificent city and is world famous as the renowned home of the Ryder Cup. VGC have made a significant commitment to support City Youth’s Community delivery as they wish to support our work and to share our vision to use sport as the vehicle to create opportunities to improve the physical and mental well-being of the people of St Albans.
St Albans City Youth FC has been delivering community projects across St Albans for over 20 years. The club’s reach continues to expand as we look to increase the positive impact we are having on those communities. The Club is widely known for its innovative Coaching Programme, Holiday Camps, Saturday Soccer School and Schools Sports delivery. Moreover, we are currently working in partnership with local colleges such as Oaklands College and The Links Academy engaging with marginalised young people and we continue to expand our Inclusive Football Section with our friends at Special Olympics St Albans and Herts Youth Inclusive Football.
Paul Keen, General Manager of Verulam Golf Club explained. “The Club’s Board and Membership have been searching for meaningful and effective ways for Verulam Golf Club to make positive and lasting impacts on the welfare of the very communities that we are privileged to be located at the very heart of. After extensive research and planning we felt that the most effective vehicle to deliver on that goal would be to support the incredible and varied projects that St Albans City Youth FC delivers across our community. We are honoured to be supporting our communities through this Partnership.”
City Youth Commercial Manager Steve Mann commented, “On behalf of all the people that our Community Projects impact I would like to thank Paul and Verulam Golf Club for their incredible support and generosity. I know that VGC shares our vision and values and has a keen desire to support our efforts to engage with and make positive impacts on the lives of people of St Albans. The partnership we have entered into has multiple benefits and facets and we look forward to delivering those over the next two years and beyond.”
