You can access funding for a range of smaller items from the Football Foundation, including goalposts, portable floodlights, storage containers, ball retention or boundary fencing, small-sided facility improvement and refurbishments to changing pavilions and clubhouses. Your project will need to have at least 25% of the total project cost provided by yourself as the applicant (or any partnership funding you are able to source from elsewhere) with the remaining being provided by the Football Foundation up to a maximum of £25,000.
Make sure you include all aspects of your application in one go (e.g. new goals and ball retention fencing) as the Football Foundation prefer not to receive multiple small grant requests from applicants in the same season. For details on what’s available visit the Football Foundation website.
