Community support

Funding level: Up to £1,000


We are a thriving community football club with senior and junior sections and over 500 players plus coaches, volunteers and administrators to run this organisation efficiently. The club is an FA Chartered Standard Club for both Junior and Senior sections and our application to become a Community Club (the highest of FA Charter designations for grass roots football) has been approved by the FA.
We are based at Copleston High School and need funding to buy a container for storage of equipment. Previously, we had a builder's portacabin, but that fell into disrepair follow wear and tear and years of good service! The club has been running for 44 years and during that time the school has been our base of operations .
As the junior section has grown (and is still growing) the club needs more storage space and a 20 foot container would perfect for our needs.

Coplestonians Football Club

The club has been operating for 44 years and the senior section currently run four teams in the Suffolk & Ipswich League. We have built a junior section from a standing start in 10 years, covering the age groups from 5 to 18 years, both boys and girls, with a strong infrastructure to support all.
