Grantham Town FC are celebrating after being awarded a £3,000 Grow the Game grant over the next three years.

The funds received from the Grow the Game grant will now go towards providing equipment for the newly formed U21 side.

Grow the Game is mainly funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation. This is money that is flowing from the very top of the game down to the lowest levels, to help clubs at the grassroots to bear the cost of starting up a new team, whether it be for a new kit, pitch hire or sending volunteers on FA-accredited coaching courses.

Grow the Game is a £2.5m programme funded by The FA and the Football Foundation. It awards grants to grassroots football clubs that wish to create new teams, especially amongst under-represented groups.

£1,500 is available to help FA-affiliated clubs with the cost of creating a new team, which might include the cost towards FA coaching courses; FA league affiliation costs; referees’ fees; first aid kits; and even football kit & equipment.
