England Manager Gareth Southgate congratulates Beacon Hill JFC’s ‘Girls Aloud’ on their funding success

Girls Aloud Under 8 & Under 9s are celebrating after being awarded a £6,000 Grow the Game grant, something that has attracted praise from England Manager Gareth Southgate.

The grant, which will provide a boost to grassroots football in Beacon Hill, Hindhead, Surrey, has paved the way for ‘Girls Aloud’ to substantially grow the participation of girls in youth football at Beacon Hill. Building on the current success of thirty five female players at U10 and U11, the funding will help to provide kit, professional training and coaching to start two new girls teams at Under 8 and Under 9.

England Men’s Senior Manager and Football Foundation Ambassador, Gareth Southgate, said: “I am so pleased that ‘Girls Aloud’ has secured this Grow the Game grant. The club has worked very hard with Surrey FA and the Football Foundation to get more local people playing football so that they can enjoy the many physical and mental benefits that come with playing regular sport.

 “Grow the Game is mainly funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation. This is money that is flowing from the very top of the game down to the lowest levels, to help clubs at the grassroots to bear the cost of starting up a new team, whether it be for a new kit, pitch hire or sending volunteers on FA accredited coaching courses.”

Grow the Game is a £2.5m programme funded by The FA and the Football Foundation. It awards grants to grassroots football clubs that wish to create new teams, especially amongst under-represented groups.

£1,500 is available to help FA-affiliated clubs with the cost of creating a new team, which might include the cost FA coaching courses; FA league affiliation costs; referees’ fees; first aid kits; and even football kit & equipment.

Alex Gowing, Vice Chair and Head Coach for Beacon Hill’s Girls Aloud, said: “We are very excited to have been awarded these funds over the next 3 years, the Grow the Game grant has given us the opportunity to take our plan for ‘girls only’ teams to the next level. We’re introducing a team into the youngest age group which is significant in laying a foundation for the future. In two years we have increased female membership from 1% to 10%, and this year we will reach a tremendous 20% with the support of the Football Foundation. Here come the girls!”

Beacon Hill JFC regains FA Charter Status

News Flash! BHJFC regains FA Charter Standard Club status!

Great news that Beacon Hill JFC is again recognised by the FA as Charter Standard Club, accreditation is awarded to clubs and leagues rigorously adjudged to be well-run and sustainable – and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.

Sponsors – your club needs you!

Sponsors – your club needs you!

Clubs like Beacon Hill JFC are run by volunteers with the sole purpose of providing the facilities and a safe and welcoming opportunity for kids to play football. If we relied on subscriptions alone the club would fall woefully short of being able to provide the all round service required to deliver that opportunity to the kids. From equipment to kit, to goals, first aid kit, professional trainers and balls, everything needs to be funded.

Thankfully, over the years we have been very lucky to have some incredibly supportive and generous sponsors who receive fantastic local exposure by getting their logos placed on the kids shirt, in exchange for funding the kit itself. For a relatively small layout, club kit can be used for many years being passed on as kids grow out of it, thus offering fantastic value for money. In addition with our brand new website, our social media channels, and the club tournament, there are plenty of channels to leverage your sponsorship.

In addition, and as importantly, the sponsors get the satisfaction that they are supporting grass roots football at a community level, that has so many wonderful and positive benefits across all generations involved with the club.

There are still many opportunities across the club to provide sponsorship. Whether it’s to sponsor a single team, an entire age group, or even the entire club, we are open to discussions about how your brand and the club could work together to best maximise exposure of your company to many thousands of people every year.

If you are interested, please don’t hesitate to contact Faye, the club secretary on admin@beaconhilljfc.com to start that discussion.

With Thanks To Our Amazing Club Sponsors
