Kent FA is delighted to learn that affiliated club Yalding and Laddingford FC have been successful in their application for a Football Foundation grant to help develop the club further.
Yalding and Laddingford have been awarded a grant of £1,080 by the Football Foundation, which will be put towards the cost of new aluminium goals for their junior sides.
Since the junior section of the club was established in 2015, the teams have been playing with samba goals, which involve significant labour to build and dismantle every time they’re required.
The new aluminium goals that Yalding and Laddingford will be able to purchase will sustain the club’s future for at least the next decade.
Tim Miller, Chairman at Yalding and Laddingford Football Club, said: “We are only a small village club with little income and minimal facilities, but we have the most wonderful players and parents who fully deserve these new goals. Being able to purchase these goals means that the club can now reach the level that it aspires to. All of the players were thrilled and this adds an extra appeal to the new season.”
