Bideford Town Council is providing Grant funding which will allow the club to increase the provision throughout 2012.
Club Chairman Bob Lovelace said:
“ We are very grateful to the Town Council for all of the support that they have given us. Our aim is to introduce young people to football and to provide an affordable, safe and positive place to go rather than playing on the streets. We encourage our young players to be proud to represent their town of Bideford. The ethos of the Club ensures that no-one is excluded through affordability and with the help of The Council, we will now be able to provide this opportunity for more local children”.
