A Richmondshire football club has launched an appeal to raise £10,000 towards a new pavilion.

Catterick Garrison Football Centre wants to build the facility at the Army Welfare Centre in Smuts Road.

The club says it has secured an area of land in the hope to build the new club pavilion.

The club currently has 14 teams from U6 to adults and has no facilities for players, parents, supporters or visiting teams.

The proposed pavilion will have two changing rooms, a referees room, a bar area and large function room.

Once built the club will be able to host all home and visiting teams, as well as run coaching/development courses, hold club events and provide an area for other community groups to use.

The club said in a statement: “The club is run by volunteers, all of the coaching staff/assistants are volunteers and the club relies on subscriptions, fundraising and sponsorship to pay for all registration costs as well as purchasing all the vital kit and equipment required to keep our teams playing football.

“To make this project a reality we must raise the vital funds required to progress into the planning and building phase, we hope that you can support us make this a reality by supporting our fundraising campaign.

“If in the very unlikely event that this project falls through then all money raised will be put back into the football club to continue support our teams and the community.”

The club plans to add the name of every person donating to a feature brick wall within the new pavilion.
