Bridlington Town Bids For £100k Renovation Programme

Bridlington Town Bids For £100k Renovation Programme

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 5:36pm 7th October 2019.

Bridlington Town has entered the national competition to win a share of this season’s £100,000 Buildbase “Transfer Deal” – giving four non-league clubs £25,000 each of building materials.

Judges, including those from Buildbase and the FA, will be looking for clubs that demonstrate a feasible renovation project that benefits players and supporters as well as the local community. 

The club has outlined its renovation plans, which include dismantling the existing clubhouse and creating a two-storey modular building to double the space of the existing facility.

As well as an upgraded bar area, the project will provide facilities for community use including housing existing and new voluntary groups, providing doorstep education and training courses plus meeting spaces and opportunities to deliver diverse football and sport-related activities.

Clubs are encouraged to get fans to support their application through the Buildbase website and social media. The club with the most votes will score a “golden ticket” with automatic entry to the final. 

The Buildbase £100k Transfer Deal is open to clubs taking part in the Buildbase FA Trophy and Buildbase FA Vase competitions.

Six clubs will be shortlisted in total and invited to pitch their renovation plans to a panel of judges at Wembley Stadium in December. 

Buildbase branches across England have been helping clubs to plan and cost their projects.

The merchant is also offering a discount on building materials to all clubs taking part in the Buildbase FA Trophy and Buildbase FA Vase.

Aisling Kenny, HR Director at Buildbase said:

“Non-league football clubs mean so much to the communities around them, but they are often in dire need of help. So far, we’ve given away building materials worth up to £300,000 and it’s fantastic to see so many of the projects we’ve supported get underway.”
