Meadow FC are one of our most recent clubs to start their lottery journey with us. We are extremely excited to work with them as they look to increase their fundraising. Meadow FC currently have a wide array of teams for both boys and girls from u7s all the way up to u18s. We spoke with Kelly Harvey to get some insight into the club and how the Sports Club Lottery can help them.
Please tell us about your club?
Meadow Sports FC is proud to be a place for children to play and enjoy grassroots football, promoting excellent standards of football for all abilities from 3 – 18 years old.
The club has been providing youth football for players of all ages and abilities since 1965. As an FA Charter Standard Community club, we are able to offer a safe and friendly environment to develop and play. This season we have 36 teams for U7s to U18s and we continue to run our Mini Meadows training sessions, for 3 to 6 year olds on Saturday mornings.
We are a great family club based in Woking, Surrey. We have some amazing facilities including our own 3G training area, floodlit grass training area and clubhouse with a cafe and fully licensed bar.
We are proud to have five girls teams and are still working hard to increase this number.
Where do you see the future of your club?
We would like to get more girls teams but to do that or take on anymore boys teams we don’t really have the room, hence wanting to increase our 3G training pitch.
How will a lottery help your club?
We hope to to see the lottery providing a sustainable income that we can put towards the 3G, plus it is a nice thing to do for our members.
It will also go towards funding a Christmas tournament, as we missed out on the summer one due to COVID and other club events. We would love to host a football festival also.
What are your fundraising goals?
Our main fundraising priority is currently our 3G pitch. Extending upon our current pitch would allow us to be able to take on even more teams, giving more children in the local area an opportunity to be a part of the Meadow FC community.
