South West

Name Parley Sports Club Share Link (over 18's only) on.fb.me/TvORqO
League Dorset Premier League Local FA Dorset FA
Home Ground Christchurch Road Founded 1949

Parley Sports Club has been in decline over many years due to lack of investment both on and off the pitch. The football club has now been revitalised on the field over the last six years due to some fantastic volunteers and can now boast to having three senior Saturday teams, one senior Sunday team, seven youth teams from U7 to U18, an Ability Counts Team and a Ladies Team.

We are desperate to give these teams the facilities they deserve with changing facilities, lights, running hot and cold water and heating that are fit for use.


Name Bedfont Sports Club Share Link (over 18's only) on.fb.me/11W0qtH
League Combined Counties League Local FA Middlesex County
Home GroundRecreation Ground Founded2002

So much more than a football club, Bedfont Sports Club is a vibrant multisport community hub. This volunteer lead club has, over the last decade, transformed a derelict site into a fantastic community facility that provides well maintained grass pitches for football and rugby use, as well as changing, meeting and social facilities for the community.

Please vote for Bedfont Sports, this will enable us to develop a new full size 3G pitch allowing us to continue growing the activities and facilities we can offer to local people all year round in all weathers.

East Grinstead Town FC was formed in 1890 and for a long time the facilities we offer to players of all ages have needed dragging into the 21st century. East Grinstead might not be known as a hotbed of football but the passion we have in our part of the world for the beautiful game is as strong as anywhere else.

Vote for us and we can provide a lasting legacy in terms of our facilities for the next generation of East Grinstead Town players - and make the club’s founders 123 years ago as proud as we are today.

West Midlands

NameBromsgrove Sporting FC Share Link (over 18's only) on.fb.me/Wzc5c5
League Midland Combination Premier Division Local FA Worcestershire FA
Home Ground The Victoria Ground Founded 2009

Bromsgrove Sporting FC was formed after the collapse of Town's senior team back in 2010. The current board formed a “Not for Profit” company to ensure the mistakes of the former club could not be repeated. Working closely with the landlord, the local council, the Victoria Ground was cleared of over 80 m3 of waste and non-league football returned to the stadium in November 2010.

The club is now 30% owned by the supporter’s society with no other shareholder having greater than a 10% holding. This ensures that all monies made by the company is ploughed back into the club. This Budweiser grant will be used to reduce the running costs of the old stadium to ensure sustainability for current and future generations of Bromsgrove Football fans.

We operate teams at all levels of ability and for all ages, from junior to senior and veterans football. We currently have over 150 users per week, and would like to double this inside a five year period.

We would like your vote for the extra £100,000 because our facilities will hold us back in achieving our objectives. Our clubhouse and changing block is over 60 years old and in need of continuous renovation & improvement to match our desired growth, and provide a good environment for participating and viewing sport.

We are a Charter Standard Community club and a registered charity, running 28 thriving teams from across all ages, male and female. Based in what was once considered one of the largest social housing estates in Europe and in the top 5% most deprived areas in the UK, we provide football to hundreds of people in our community each and every week; unfortunately we do not have a clubhouse, changing rooms or our own ground to play on.

We aim to build first class facilities and a state of the art clubhouse on Hollyhedge Park, our new home! Please help us start something special...please vote for Wythenshawe Amateurs.

League Cambridgeshire Football Association County League Local FA Cambridgeshire FA
Home Ground Meadow Lane Founded 1878

A vote for Linton is a vote for a club with a successful history based on traditional sporting values and an exciting vision for the future of rural grassroots sports clubs as real community centres. The club already hosts football at all levels as well as cricket, bowls, social activities for all ages and draws participants from Linton and the surrounding rural area.

To meet demand plans are in place for new teams for womens/girls cricket and football, a pre-school sports programme and park and more 'active retirement' and social events for the elderly. Modern facilities and new resources such as transport and all weather surfaces are now urgently needed to help Linton deliver its goals!
