BASTINGSTOKE Town Community Football Club has put its name in the hate in a bid to win a share of £100,000.

The club has entered a national competition to win a share of this season’s £100,000 Buildbase “Transfer Deal” – giving four non-league clubs £25,000 each of building materials.

Judges, including those from Buildbase and the FA, will be looking for clubs that demonstrate a feasible renovation project that benefits players and supporters as well as the local community.

In a bid to acquire the funding the club has outlined its renovation plans, which involve bringing the ground up to Grade C grading.

This includes covered terracing to accommodate 400 spectators, increasing the existing stand seating capacity from 66 to 100, building turnstiles and extending the current changing rooms.

It also means being able to offer the clubhouse to the community as a central hub for coffee mornings and also a creche.

Ian McConville, procurement director at Buildbase said: “Non-league football clubs mean so much to the communities around them, but they are often in dire need of help.

“So far, we’ve given away building materials worth up to £300,000 and it’s fantastic to see so many of the projects we’ve supported get underway.”

The community club is urging fans and residents support their application through the Buildbase website and social media.

The club with the most votes will score a “golden ticket” with automatic entry to the final.

As previously reported in the Gazette the club is looking to move to the Winklebury Sports Complex to make it the new home of the club.
