  • Our commitment to the community was again shown with Christmas presents for Birmingham Children’s Hospital donated; £780 raised for the Poppy Appeal; clubhouse function room provided for local community groups free of charge; £400 raised from a quiz night for Birmingham Children’s Hospital; food donated to local foodbanks; free coaching provided to local schools; a pitch measured and marked out at a local park.
  • The securing of a formal link with Bunclody FC in Ireland.
  • Coaches and young players within the club were supported in their personal development through coaching courses and in particular over 30 young players getting Football Leaders qualifications.
