Virginia Water FC have announced plans for a community event at their ground, to help young hopefuls show off their talents and bring local families and friends together.
On the day there will be youth team games on the pitch and other fundraising activities for local good causes in the clubhouse.
The club says it wants to serve the village from a sporting and social aspect; not just for the players and their families, but for the entire community.
The Surrey Intermediate club has seen a huge growth over the past year. Last season there were just four teams, however since James King took over as chair in late 2013 they now have representation in every age group, from under-9’s up to the men’s first team and even a summer soccer school.
Speaking about the club’s community influence, King said: “For a club like ours we need players staying here from youth level all the way through to senior level to keep it alive. It would be a pleasure of mine to ensure that the community are aware and are able part of the clubs future plans.”
The event is to be held at the Timbers sports ground on Crown Road and is likely to be on May Bank holiday Monday, from 10am until 4pm.
