The Chairman of Enfield Borough FC says he is delighted after securing investment from The FA to help develop players.

The club have been awarded a grant from The FA’s Stay in the Game scheme to help aid the club’s retention of its adult male players, giving them the financial support to cover the costs incurred by grassroots clubs.

The Stay in the Game scheme is funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation, with grants of £750 awarded to existing clubs in order to boost financial sustainability and allow clubs to continue offering playing opportunities in organised football.

Grants can be used towards matchday and training facility hire and league affiliation costs as well as covering match day subs for individuals that aren’t able to afford their regular match fees.

Marvin Walker, chairman, said: “We are very pleased to receive funding from the football foundation. We will use the money to help attract new players to our club, whilst continuing to develop and aid the players we already have.”
