Application for Financial Assistance pdf icon PDF 84 KB

Consider application from Melrose Football Club (copy attached).


There had been circulated copies of an application for financial assistance, from Melrose Football Club.  The application explained that the club was a volunteer based community football club with over 240 players under the age of 14, with one third of the number being girls.  The club was seeking a sum of £3,500, towards the cost of a complete upgrade of football kits across the whole club. This would also mean that, for the first time, the club would have the same identity rather than a collection of designs and brands.  This would drive take-up in terms of participation and encourage return of those that had stopped due to Covid.  For the first time the club would have one identity. The estimated total cost of the project was £6,697.60, the remaining funds being sourced from sponsors and an application to the Community Fund. Members discussed the application and unanimously gave it their support, welcoming the fact that the initiative would give the club a single identity. The application for a grant of £3,500 was approved in full.



AGREED to award a grant of £3,500 to Melrose Football Club
