The creation of a community astro at Cantley Park would serve as a football base for the whole local community and beyond. We currently run sessions for 400 4-18 year old boys and girls from the local community. These sessions comprise of a free session for 4-6 year olds. 3 all girls teams, numerous mixed sessions for boys and girls aged 7-18 year old and a summer tournament engaging 7000 people over a weekend in June. Future plans are to offer pan disability sessions, extra all girls sessions and further events to engage the community.

What we'll deliver:

  • Community engagement
  • Disabilty football
  • Inclusive club

Why it's a great idea:

The project is in line with the local football facilities development plan and the mayors get Doncaster moving campaign. We are currently the only Community Charter Standard Football Club in Doncaster and this is the highest standard a grassroots club can currently achieve. Our growth has been recognised by the Football Association and we are one of only 5 clubs in the Sheffield and Hallamshire region to be invited to take part in this project.

Steps to get it done:

  • Lease of the land from the council
