Community Football Club Secures £25,000 From Sporting Legacy Fund

Mon 12th Aug 2013 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Ashford Town (Middlesex) Football Club has secured Olympic legacy funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund.

Sport England today revealed that more than 1,300 local sports projects across the country have now received National Lottery funding through Inspired Facilities, part of its Olympic and Paralympic legacy programme.

Ashford Town (Middlesex) FC will receive £25,000 of funding from Sport England, which will enable the Ash Trees to replace the clubhouse roof at their Robert Parker Stadium home and make good damage caused by the deterioration of the roof.

Sport England’s Chair, Nick Bitel, said: “A year on from the Olympics, this National Lottery investment is helping us deliver a lasting sporting legacy in Spelthorne.

“With investment now on offer from our Inspired Facilities Fund until 2017, we look forward to supporting many more sports clubs in London and the South East who play such a vital role in grassroots sport.”

General Secretary of the Club, Gareth Coates, said: “We are thrilled to have secured this investment, which secures the immediate future of our club. At a time when the club is growing on and off the field, it is an honour to be part of the 2012 Olympics’ legacy. We will strive to ensure that, as a result of the support we have received, we continue to offer the people of Spelthorne with the opportunity to play football.”

Ashford Town (Middlesex) Football Club is one of well over 300 projects across England receiving lottery investment from the fourth round of the Inspired Facilities fund and one of more than 1,300 to benefit overall. 

Many more communities are now set to benefit from the hugely popular fund, after Sport England today announced that it was extending Inspired Facilities until 2017, with an additional £40 million of National Lottery funding to invest. Bids will be accepted for the next round of Inspired Facilities funding from the 21 October 2013.
