Cheadle Town FC have been shortlisted as one of the clubs who are in with a chance of receiving a bursary as part of the Buildbase Club Renovation Programme for 2018.
Ourselves and five other non-league clubs will now “play off” against each other for a 50/50 share of the 2018 £100k product bursary for club improvements.
The six teams – playing in either The Buildbase FA Trophy or The Buildbase FA Vase competitions – will now pitch their plans to a panel of judges at Wembley Stadium on 29th March.
Two winning teams will each walk away with a £50,000 product bursary which includes building, electrical and hire products for their local club facilities.
The clubs selected as finalists by Buildbase and The FA, chosen from a total of 57 applications from around the country are ourselves, Dunkirk and Leicester Road from The Buildbase FA Vase and Lincoln United, Ashford United and Needham Market from The Buildbase FA Trophy.
For the application process, each of the clubs outlined their proposed renovation plans if successful in the competition which include clubhouse extensions, pitch improvements, creating facilities for disabled people and installing new fencing.
We were pipped to the post by Cleethorpes Town last season so it is second time lucky for us.
Wish us luck!
