Description

TO PURCHASE ADJOINING LAND TO OUR CURRENT FACILITY AND TO CREATE ANOTHER FOOTBALL PITCH SO THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO PROVIDE FOOTBALL FOR BOYS AND GIRLS IN THE COMMUNITY, WE ARE VICTIMS OF OUR OWN SUCCESS SADLY , AS A FA CHARTERED STANDARD COMMUNITY FOOTBALL CLUB WE PROVIDE FOOTBALL COACHING AND CURRENTLY HAVE 32 TEAMS PLUS FIRST TEAM AND RESERVE TEAMS AT EUXTON VILLA, WE HAVE 5 GIRLS TEAMS PLUS DEVELOPMENT GROUPS , DOWN TO THE SHEER AMOUNT OF CHILDREN WHO WANT TO PLAY FOOTBALL AT EUXTON VILLA WE ARE REALLY STRUGGLING TO FIND SPACE FOR ALL THESE CHILDREN TO TRAIN AND TO PLAY, WE ACCEPT CHILDREN NO MATTER WHAT THEIR ABILITIES OR DISABILITIES ARE AND NEVER TURN ANYONE AWAY , HENCE THE CLUB AS QUICKLY OUTGROWN OUR OWN FACILITIES AND TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE NON PROFIT FOOTBALL TRAINING AND MATCHES WE DO WE NEED TO CONSIDER EXPANDING .
WE ARE A CLUB THAT FIRST FORMED IN 1907 AND AS PRODUCED SOME PLAYERS WHO HAVE GONE ON TO BECOME PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALLERS.
WE ACTIVELY ENCOURAGE AND PROMOTE THE GIRLS GAME AND HAVE 5 GIRLS TEAMS COMPETING IN A LEAGUE THAT AS THE LIKES OF BLACKPOOL.WIGAN,PRESTON NORTH END IN IT. THIS PROJECT IF WE ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BE SUCCESSFUL WILL ALLOW US TO PURCHASE THE FIELD ALONGSIDE THE CLUB AND TO CREATE ANOTHER PLAYING SURFACE IN WHICH WE CAN ALLOW MORE CHILDREN FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS TO COME ALONG , LEARN, SOCIALISE , KEEP FIT AND MORE IMPORTANTLY HAVE FUN .
WE TAKE CHILDREN FROM THE AGE OF 4 STRAIGHT THROUGH TO OUR FIRST TEAM AT 18+
THIS EQUATES TO APPROX 400 CHILDREN WHO ALL NEED GAME TIME IN ORDER FOR THEM TO DEVELOP. AS A CLUB WE TAKE OUR ROLE IN THE COMMUNITY VERY SERIOUS AND WE ADHERE TO THE FA'S STRATEGIES AND REQUIREMENTS , OUR COACHES ARE ALL QUALIFIED FA COACHES WHO OFFER THEIR TIME AND SKILL SETS TO VOLUNTEER TO RUN PRACTICE AND LEAGUE MATCHES, THE SUBS WE CHARGE ARE AS LOW AS WE CAN AFFORD AS WE BELIEVE NO CHILD SHOULD BE TOLD THEY CANT PLAY A SPORT BECAUSE ITS TOO EXPENSIVE , AND AS A NON PROFIT FOOTBALL CLUB , FUNDS WE RAISE ARE PLOUGHED BACK TO PURCHASE EQUIPMENT, FOOTBALLS,KITS ETC AND THE UPKEEP OF THE PITCHES WE ALREADY HAVE.
FOR THE LAST FEW SEASONS OUR NUMBERS HAVE GROWN RAPIDLY AND WE COULD NEVER HAVE ENVISAGED THE INTAKE OF CHILDREN WE WOULD HAVE.
SADLY THE GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL SET UP DOESNT HAVE THE FINANCIAL BACKING OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE AND WE HAVE TO RELY ON COMMUNITY GRANTS OR CHARITY FUNDRAISING BUT WE BELIEVE IN WHAT WE DO AND WE WILL ENDEAVOUR TO SUPPORT THE CHILDREN AND THE FAMILIES OF THE COMMUNITY AND PROVIDE INCLUSIVE FOOTBALL FOR ALL.
