A quick update on the Centenary Ground renovations and your chance to win your team its own Pizza Party at Brinkley!
Centenary Ground Update
Over the summer work will continue improving the Centenary Ground at Brinkley. After the clubhouse redevelopment, attention will now turn to the pitches, ready for next season. Our first job is the creation of a new Pitch 1. This will be an 11-a-side pitch. We will begin levelling and seeding the pitch shortly and, once this is done, perimeter fencing will be installed to create an enclosed playing area.
Putting a fence around the new main pitch has two big advantages. As well as creating a more enjoyable experience for both players and spectators, it also allows us to generate revenue for the club by selling advertising space. We are planning for the pitch to be ready for playing on by October and selling adverts before then will help us to cover some of the considerable cost of this next stage.
How You Can Help
The cost of advertising at Brinkley next season starts at just £150. For any local business looking to raise its profile locally and to show support for the club, we believe that this is great value.
We are now asking all of our managers to make their parents/players aware of this opportunity, as many will work within local businesses that would benefit from this kind of exposure.
We have 31 City teams registered for next season and we are asking each team to try and sell two boards. If we can achieve this bare minimum, that would raise nearly £10,000 for the club!
Win A Pizza Party for Your Team
We want to make this a bit of fun so we will offer a free Pizza Party at Brinkley for any junior team that sells just 10 banners between now and the end of July. We will supply the pizza and the clubhouse on the day of your choosing. Your players will have a great time and you will be supporting the club as well. What better incentive could you want. (We will also let every other team know when you do it!)
Note: Don’t be disheartened if your team can’t quite sell 10 adverts before July 31st. We will also be giving out some mystery prizes for teams that sell at least 5 advertising spots between now and the end of the promotional period. 😊
Feel free to share this information with anybody you know who wants to support the club. Jonny Upton will be taking the orders. Please contact him through the club WhatsApp if you have any questions. Or email [email protected].
