West End Terriers FC
West End Terriers FC are a football club based in Hemsworth providing football coaching for boys and girls aged 3-18 years with the opportunity to continue playing football into adulthood with our U19's, Open age Saturday and Sunday sides & our Over 35's teams.
The football club has an elected management committee, officials are elected from the clubs members.
The management committee oversee the day to day running of the club, guiding and advising the clubs committee that is made up of all the clubs registered managers and coaches. They hold office for 12 months, from AGM to AGM, at which they will stand down and new officials will be elected.
We run an annual tournament, and that is where the bulk
of the funds we use to stay operational come from. This is
held in July. Subscriptions for our kids are £2.00 per week, between the months of August and May.
We are here to provide football development opportunities for all from age 3 to over 35's, our club has been around since 1986 and over recent years has seen a huge growth in participation especially from girls! We now have 4 established all girls teams with another 2 ready to go in the upcoming 2018/19 season.
How would this funding have an impact on your community?
Our club having so many young participants is already impacting our community giving the young people something to do, football teaches much more than a sport, there's health benefits, discipline, work ethic, teamwork, physical strength, mental strength and leadership. To keep our club going and kids participating we need money to invest in equipment to provide fun filled coaching to our young people. There are so many types of equipment available which don't just improve ability but also make our sessions interesting, exciting and fun to be part of! This equipment therefore needs investment of which we do not have funds to cover. We'd love to purchase much needed equipment over the next few years and the Skipton Building Society’s Grassroots Giving fund would be a massive jump forward to purchasing such items.
"Wanting to make a positive impact on our community and provide football development opportunities for all West End Terriers was formed in 1986, since then the club has grown to a staggering 24 teams with boys and girls from aged 3 to 18 participating in leagues along with 2 open age sides and a over 35's team. Our club is fantastic and are volunteers are outstanding. Dale Wainwright - Club Treasurer"
