Ross Juniors Football Club Youth Football Shelters


The funding is required for Ross Juniors Football Club youth section which comprises both girls and boys teams aged 4 to 16 (over 400 players). These shelters would be placed alongside the smaller pitches to encourage participation by the younger club members and attract new boys and girls to the club and sport.

Our goals:

  • Enhance the welfare of existing youth players. In the winter months the children have to play in all conditions and it is evident to see the discomfort of subs on the side lines in driving rain & cold. The shelters would protect the substitutes.
  • Increase youth participation in football. Some younger children have been put off football due to winter conditions. The shelters would help boys and girls in Ross on Wye and the surrounding area to the sport.
  • Encourage girls to the sport. The girls section has only been going for 6 years, has 7 teams in age groups from Under 8 to Under 16, and is going from strength to strength. The shelters would encourage participation to this growing section.

How we will achieve our goals

As with many clubs it is hard to gain or internally grow the funds to access the equipment needed to enhance the sport so this £5000 would be put to good use! Shelters would be purchased and constructed on site. The wheels would enable the shelters to be moved from pitch to pitch to shelter the youngest/most at need children during matches.

Where the money will go

Ross Juniors Football Club is based in Ross-on-Wye and is based at a shared town Sports Centre. Over 400 children from the town and surrounding areas currently participate in football at the club with new players in the younger age groups joining each year so these shelters would directly benefit the local community.
