One Club::One Vision
Tez Frost is organising this fundraiser on behalf of Larkhall Athletic Football Club.
Larkhall Athletic is embarking on its next stage of evolution, with over 100 years of history and many achievement on the pitch and in the community; the club is looking towards an even brighter future with more inclusion of the 500+ youth players (girls and boys) into the One Club::One Vision with the senior players (women and mens) at our joint home at Plain Ham, Bath.
With your donation we can achieve the mission and vision outlined below.
"Larkhall Athletic Football Club’s mission is to provide a safe and rewarding environment for all players to develop to their full ability in football. The club will strive to provide the best quality coaching, facilities and equipment working closely together within the Larkhall Community."
At present we hire training facilities from Kingswood, Oldfield, Royal High, St Marks, Beckford via BWB (let by BANES). Details can be found here: https://www.larkhallathleticyouth.com/facilities
The Youth and Senior Club's are developing a masterplan concept with a phased approach:
Phase 1 - short term: development of 3G pitch on plain ham main surface. The central idea behind this is to have a joint location for training during the week and giving opportunity to play weekend games, when possible, on the main pitch at Plain Ham (where the men and women's team play today). This would give us access to the main clubhouse, changing facilities and toilets. Allowing parents somewhere to relax with hot drinks and food available.
Phase 2 long term: consists of several parallel paths:
Additional Training: development of further 3G training pitch on plain ham to provide increased training and match availability.
Facilities: development of a new main clubhouse that would overlook both the main and additional training pitch. This would be connected to the old clubhouse with a terrace for seating between them. The old clubhouse would be repurposed as a community area.
Access and Parking: new easier accessed entrance, additional parking.
Coaching Facility: coaching analysis suite (on field video capture), fitness gym
Lansdown: formal agreement on the use of Beckford Tower Playing Fields
