178 Football clubs and local communities across the UK will receive investment in grassroots football facilities from UK Government, the FA and the Premier League.
Across Wales, a total of £1.3 million has been invested, with Fishguard Sports AFC awarded £26, 072.
Fishguard Sports AFC is 1 of 17 grassroots facilities across Wales to be regenerated through UK Government investment. This funding is aimed at creating and improving pitches, changing rooms and pavilions so that more local communities can access high-quality facilities.
Stephen Crabb MP for Preseli Pembrokeshire commented:
“I am delighted to see that Preseli Pembrokeshire has benefitted from the UK Government’s funding for improvements, as part of a major commitment to levelling up access to physical activity.”
“Poor pitch drainage has prevented the club from expanding its offer, especially for ladies, football, cricket and the u16s disabled team. The sum of £26,072 will go towards improving the drainage of the second pitch and the purchase of portable floodlights to enable usage of the pitch in the evenings.”
“Sports clubs remain important community hubs and I know that this money will be gratefully received by everyone at Fishguard Sports AFC and the wider local community.”
