Newcastle United Foundation Awarded ‘Grow The Game’ Grant

Newcastle United Foundation is pleased to announce the awarding of a ‘Grow the Game’ grant of £6,000 to support our Disability Football teams.

Funded by the FA and the Football Foundation, ‘Grow the Game’ provides funding for projects that use football to increase participation of players and volunteers by setting up new teams.

The Foundation has been successful in our bid to fund four new and up and coming Disability football teams.

The grant will support our new Junior Power Chair team which will enter the North East Power Chair Regional Championship league, our Amputee Football team which will compete in the National League North starting this September, and finally our Down’s Syndrome Football and Frame Football teams.

The funds will help to develop these squads, expanding participation and increasing competitive playing time for our players.

Grant money will contribute towards venue hire, coaching time, playing kit and equipment and include travel costs to the various fixture venues.

Mark Daglish, Disability Football Development Officer at Newcastle United Foundation said: “As our Disability football project continues to grow, we are now developing more and more teams to give disabled children and adult participants every opportunity to play the game and represent the club.

“This additional financial support means that we can now enter both regional and national leagues, with new playing kit, to improve our participants as players and to give them the opportunity to play with friends who they have met through the various weekly Disability Football projects”.
