Howden Clough Day to Day Club Management
Howden Clough JFC provide a fun and safe environment for all of our players to develop and thrive. We regularly buy new equipment including training equipment, footballs, goal posts, nets, football pitch line paint, mowers for the grass, storage containers and more. All of our coaches need periodic training including DBS checks, Safeguarding Training, First Aid Training and FA Coaching training. A lot of the training requires refresher training and renewals. We need to annually maintain insurances and pay for league fees and registrations. We also need to pay for hiring some of the training pitches and sports halls that we use.
We provide medals and trophies for our players for the end of season presentation events, as a thank you for the hard work and commitment our players show throughout the football season.
The player subs we receive helps in some part to pay for all of this. However, the sub fees alone are not quite enough, so as a not for profit organisation, Howden Clough do hold regular fundraising events. Please read further for more details of our fundraising activities.
Howden Clough JFC Club House Go Fund Me Page
Howden Clough JFC was established in 1976. The team has grown in stature over the years, becoming one of the largest Junior Football clubs in the region. We would like to have a place to call home, and as such are in the early stages of developing a Clubhouse. The clubhouse will require a lot of fundraising and hard work. Once set up, it would be a continual source of income for the club, providing welfare facilities for everyone involved with the club, and the visiting players, spectators and local community.
The Club are working with our Local MP Tracy Brabin and her team, the local authority, Kirklees Planning Officers, Kirklees Active Leisure (KAL), and Batley Girls High School. Tracy Brabin MP visited the club recently on a match day to watch some of the games, speak with lots of our volunteers, spectators and players. We discussed our plans, and agreed to work with us and other stakeholders to progress our clubhouse project.
The Howden Clough JFC committee have had further consultation meetings with Batley Girls High School to agree specific locations of the proposed Clubhouse.
Following the the site meetings with builders and developers, discussion the facilities our Club House will need and the best building options available.
There is conceptual design for the club house, for which we have held further positive consultation meetings with Batley Girls High School, Kirklees Planning Officers & Tracey Brabins team to progress our project further. We now have a target cost for the Club House project, so it is full steam ahead for Howden Clough JFC’s fundraising activities.
This will be the biggest project we have undertaken, and will need the support from our community to achieve our goal.
If you would like to know more about our Clubhouse Project, please ask any questions on the contact us page.
We are undertaking a lot of fundraising activities, which you will see updates regularly.
This is a very important step forward for the club, which will provide state of the art facilities for children to play, enjoy and develop for years to come. If you would like to contribute to our Clubhouse project, please, please, please dig deep and donate whatever you can via our
