£100k Grant To Revamp Bridlington Town Clubhouse

Bridlington Town Football Club has been awarded funding to revamp its facilities.

It has been given £100,000 from the Premier League, The FA and Government's Football Foundation, to upgrade their clubhouse.

Players and the local community will be able to experience a new purpose built building, which will represent a significant improvement on the existing clubhouse which was in need of renovation, including hospitality and year round community use.

Bridlington Town AFC worked with the Football Foundation and the East Riding County FA to secure a £100,000 grant towards the project.

Peter Smurthwaite, Owner and Chairman, Bridlington Town AFC, said:

“Football makes a huge difference to the players, coaches, spectators and the whole community here.

We see first-hand the impact on players’ confidence, physical health and mental focus. To receive this funding from the Premier League, The FA and the Government through the Football Foundation means a lot to us, as it will help us to improve grassroots sport across Bridlington and the surrounding area and get even more people involved in the nation’s favourite game.”

Paul Thorogood, Chief Executive of the Football Foundation, said:

“We’re dedicated to improving grassroots football facilities because we want to encourage more people to get involved in our nation’s favourite game, regardless of their background, age or ability or place.

That’s why I’m delighted that this funding will support Bridlington Town AFC in developing their new clubhouse, which will benefit the local community for years to come. 

Made possible by investment from the Premier League, The FA and the Government, via Sport England, the Football Foundation is supporting the grassroots game by improving access to high-quality football facilities across the country.

We believe in the power of pitches to transform lives and strengthen communities and so we’ll be investing £1bn across the country over the next 10 years.”
