Bright Future For Rocks - 9 May
The Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF), supporters of the Football Foundation, and the largest funder of non league football in the country, announce a grant of £50,671 to Tytherington Rocks Football Club.
This award will enable Tytherington Rocks FC to install floodlights at their ground and will allow them to progress up the football league pyramid, with the opportunity to participate in a wider range of FA competitions.
Funded with £6m each year from the Premier League, the FSIF is the country’s largest provider of grants towards projects that help improve the comfort and safety of lower league football grounds in both the professional and amateur game. These improvements range from new football stands and turnstiles to floodlighting and improved provision for disabled supporters.
Ted Travell, Chairman of Tytherington Rocks FC, said: “We really are delighted with the grant award from the Football Stadia Improvement Fund. It will give spectators the opportunity to enjoy a high level of amateur football, which it is hoped these new facilities will bring to the club.”
Peter McCormick, FSIF Chairman, said: “I am delighted that my colleagues and I have been able to award this grant to Tytherington Rocks FC to allow them to install floodlights at their home ground. “FSIF staff work hard to make sure that the funding that is generously provided by the Premier League each year goes as far as possible and benefits as many clubs and supporters as it possibly can.”
