South Shields Under 8s Football Team
South Shields under 8s football team are a self-funded grassroots football team playing in the South Tyneside & Sunderland area, as well as travelling throughout the North East for local football tournaments. As a subsidiary team of South Shields FC Foundation the charitable arm of South Shields Football Club registered charity number 1176894. We rely solely on volunteers and charitable donations, majority of which come from parents. The team is made up of 7, 7 year old boys who over the past two years have grown to become best friends, not just on the pitch but most importantly off it also.
We would love to use the project fund to support the boys travelling to next year’s North East Football Championships held at Flamingo Land Resort. The format of the tournament allows a great balance between game play, and time for off pitch activities, concentrating on team building in a fun relaxed environment. This will give the opportunity to spend time away from home working together as a team, as well as socialising together and with other parents and siblings which is supporting the clubs ethos and ensuring were not just playing a game but creating memories to last a lifetime. The project fund could secure our place with a deposit and lay the foundations for our fundraising and community support projects, throughout the year all of which would be built around team working. We would love your support to ‘kick off’ this project.
