Introducing The Styal Football Club Lottery
One of our most recent clubs to start their lottery fundraising with The Sports Club Lottery is Styal FC. We cannot wait to work with the club and support their fundraising goals! We spoke with Peter, to learn a little more about Styal FC and what they do.
Please tell us about Styal FC
Styal Football Club was formed in 1912 and is a village football club that punches above its weight. Our enclosed and scenic ground is envied far and wide for the quality of the facilities we have on offer. Our hard working backroom staff support the footballing structure. We play in the Cheshire League, having 2 teams that play football on Saturdays. The first team and reserves have been successful in recent seasons with successful campaigns seeing them lift the Altrincham Cup for the last 2 years. We have also won the Reserve league Championship.
Where do you see the future of the club?
The ambition of the club it to eventually achieve step 6 status. This needs the club infrastructure to be updated and enhanced as a part of this. Having a well supported lottery to help us stabilise our fund raising income will be a real pillar of these efforts.
How will Styal FC’s lottery help the club?
As alluded to in the earlier comments we cannot be certain of our well supported events will return soon. Particularly the Styal Beer Festival which has a fantastic reputation throughout Cheshire and the wider area. We think the lottery if done correctly will enable us to get more financial support. W hope to see ex players and friends of players, local people from the village all supporting the lottery.
What are your fundraising goals?
The overall aim is to achieve step 6 status. However along the way to that we will need to be enhancing the ground, the clubhouse, the training areas and facilities generally to provide a warm and welcoming environment.
