PUYFC Panthers Score With Funding Success

(Victoria Pinion 08/06/2020)
There’s good news for PUYFC Panthers, We have been awarded a Pitch Preparation Fund grant from the Premier League, The FA and the Government’s Football Foundation.

The Pitch Preparation Fund was set up in support of the game, which is currently facing unprecedented challenges because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The Fund is providing grants to clubs that have lost out on normal revenue streams during this difficult period.

The funding will enable the Panthers who play at Grove fields, to prepare their football pitches so that they are match-fit for when it is safe to play football again, following Government advice.

They can use their grant towards to help pay for the cost of materials, work such as verti-draining, chain harrowing, rolling, over-seeding, fertilising, weed-killing, and routine preparatory work such as grass cutting and the setting out and line-marking of pitches.

Managers, Dave Symes & Mark Franklin, said: “Wow this is amazing!, It will come in extremely handy to get the Grove fields pitch ready for the new season”

Robert Sullivan, Interim Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said: “This is a vital grant to help insert club/organisation name get their pitches match-fit.

“The Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation exists to help provide quality infrastructure at the lower-levels of the game. Pitch Preparation Fund grants like this one are giving a helping hand to clubs across the country to get their playing surfaces ready for when the game is allowed to begin again following government advice.”

The Football Foundation is a charity funded by the Premier League, The FA and the Government, through Sport England.
