Lewisham Borough Community FC have launched a Crowdfunding scheme to ensure their survival over the coming seasons.
“Lewisham Borough FC is a semi-professional club playing in the Southern Counties East Football League. The club has the support of Lewisham Council and matches are held at the Ladywell Arena, Silvermere Road, Catford, SE6.
Over the last few years we have noticed that many of our talented players are leaving the borough of Lewisham to play senior football in Bromley, Greenwich, Croydon and Kent.
Our aim is to ensure that all residents are aware of the club, the fixtures, and the potential to play football at a senior level for the borough. We would like to encourage children residing in the borough to play football and be part of the Lewisham Borough FC family. We currently have formed the following sides U15, U16, U18, playing in the Kent Youth League.
With your help we can form sides for the younger age groups.
We have formed a new committee, recruited professional football coaches, match day staff and safe guarding officers for the junior section of the club.
We are all volunteers and are passionate about providing a positive environment for our young members of the community. Current events in the media highlight many issues. We feel by offering a footballing opportunity for all in the borough to train, play, and socialise will only be beneficial to all.
Your donation will go towards paying for training facilities, equipment, and match day kits.
Any donation will be greatly received, we look forward to welcoming you to Ladywell Arena supporting your community club.”
