AFC Barwell becomes a registered charity.

A significant milestone in the history of AFC Barwell was reached this week, with the club becoming a registered charity.

The Dovecote Way-based football club was awarded charitable status following a successful application to the Charity Commission. Registered Charity status will help the club to more effectively represent and help the needs of the local community, as well as making it easier to access funds from government and grant-making trusts.

Neal Fletcher, Club Chairperson said:

“This is a fantastic achievement and one we have been working towards for a while. We are already working at the highest level of FA Charter Standard, and the award of charitable status is further recognition of our efforts and good governance both on and off the football field. The team who put together the application have worked hard and it’s great that we got the result we were looking for.

“We are very proud of what we have here.”

AFC Barwell is an FA Charter Standard Community football club offering grassroots football to players between the ages of 3 and 18.

A new era is dawning for AFC Barwell after the official opening of their new £600,000 pavilion.
Barwell parish councillor Andy Ellis and outgoing secretary Karen Hollings had the honour of cutting the ribbon to open the building at their Dovecote Way venue

Barwell, one of the county's premier Charter Standard clubs, have around 300 youngsters, playing across 25 teams and at various venues across the area.

The new pavilion realises the vision of providing a permanent home for the next generation of young footballers in the area, as well as providing a great facility for the community.

Neal Fletcher, club chairman, said: "This would not have been possible without the help of a number of dedicated people on the club committee, as well as the hard work of the parish council and funding from Leicestershire & Rutland County FA and the Football Foundation.

"We thank all those people and are very grateful to them in helping to provide a wonderful opportunity for our club."

As part of the development, new playing surfaces have also been introduced and the club plans an open day in the summer to officially mark the start of the new season at their new home.

Darren Finney, the club's football development officer, said the facility was fantastic and hoped that it would encourage even more young footballers from the area to come along.

He added: "As one of the first Charter Standard clubs in the county, we work closely with the County FA to make sure all of our coaches are educated to the highest possible level.

"We want to make sure the young people have the best possible experience every time they set foot on to the pitch."

The club welcomes new players of all ages, both boys and girls. For further details contact secretary Steve Purkiss on  07717 675546
