  • > GRASSROOTS WINNERS - Hartwell Forest FC


Added 13 Sep 2016 by GFORCE

Hartwell Forest FC have received £500 from the GFORCE Grassroots Campaign which aims to provide financial support to help local sports teams and clubs from across the region achieve their aspirations.

Matthew Hurst from Hartwell Forest FC said: “We are absolutely delighted to have received this money from GFORCE.

“Hartwell Forest FC play in the Nene Sunday League in Northamptonshire where we have just started our fifth season. Our highlights so far have been winning the County Cup in 2014 and the League Cup in 2016.

“This donation will help towards our fund for changing and storage facilities at our school lane ground. Once in place the facilities will provide us with a base of operations, allowing us to grow and develop the club.

“Our main aims are to expand our offer to the local community by running free football sessions to 5-11 year olds and creating new teams to represent the village in the local leagues.”

GFORCE launched the campaign reinforcing its commitment to grassroots sport earlier this year by setting aside a £5,000 pot of money which organisations applied to for grants, with a maximum value of up to £750 per team or club.

Simon Ward, sales director at GFORCE, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be making a difference to Hartwell Forest FC. This club is a real example of grassroots sports making a difference in a community. As well as working to offer the free sessions to youngsters they want to improve their pitch and firmly establish the club at the heart of the village.

“The GFORCE Grassroots campaign exists to reward the dedication, passion and success of sports teams and clubs from across the East Midlands.

“Our company has a proud history of supporting the local community and we are looking forward to giving out more grants to help local sports clubs over the coming months.”

GFORCE, based on London Road in Leicester, is a high performance sports brand offered by Gymphlex Ltd - member of a group of companies, also including Leicester-based Uniform specialists Grahame Gardner Ltd.
