Isle of Wedmore FC scores with funding success.
The club has been awarded a £5000 Pitch Preparation Fund grant from the Premier League, The FA and the Government’s Football Foundation.
The Pitch Preparation Fund was set up in support of the game, which is currently facing unprecedented challenges because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The Fund is providing grants to clubs that have lost out on normal revenue streams during this difficult period.
The funding will enable the club to prepare the football pitches so that they are match-fit for when it is safe to play football again, following Government advice. The grant will be used to pay for the cost of verti-draining, fertilising, weed-killing, and sand top-dressing.
Wowzers, bet you didn’t know this!
