Saints and City Youth Partnership successfully obtain grant to continue its community project
The Football Conference Trust will be providing a £40,000 Grant to help St Albans City FC and St Albans City Youth Community FC deliver a £64,000 Community Project over the next two years in the St Albans District.
The Project will encourage more young people to take part in a multitude of sports (not just football) and join local youth groups. The School's programme will see St Albans City FC and St Albans City Youth Community Football Club continuing their working together to promote healthy lifestyles. Finally, the project will educate young people from the age of 14 to 16 to act as role models on the programme, to provide them with a Sports Leaders qualification and make it sustainable.
Whilst delivering these activities in local Schools and Clubs we will be looking to make more people aware of the social and educational opportunities St Albans City FC and St Albans City Youth FC can offer to the wider Community.
The Football Conference Trust is a partnership between the Football Conference, the Premier League and the Professional Footballers' Association. The Premier League and the PFA have each committed to support the Trust until 2017.
They have each contributed to a total fund of £5.2M. This is to support all Conference member clubs to help support and develop their community activities
St Albans City Football Club and St Albans City Youth Community Football Club would together like to extend our very grateful thanks to the Premier League and Professional Footballers’ Association who have enabled the Grant.
