Today Ryburn United received a major boost in our clubs vision to create a community, sporting and footballing hub for all to enjoy. We have been approved for funding by the Premier League and FA Facilities Fund in support of our new club house.

The Premier League and FA Facilities Fund are the majority funding partner, covering 75% of the total cost – so today’s news is a massive boost to the project. We must be very clear at this early stage to recognise this is an amazing step forward but we should not under estimate the hard work and support that will be required moving forward.

In the short term we must now rally together and ensure our contribution (the 25%) is met through the “Buy a Brick”  initiative. While we have raised £5k to date this is only 25% of what is needed. We now encourage all supporters, members and the local community to buy that brick to ensure we can translate this amazing announcement in to a reality.
