Morriston Town AFC By Morriston Town AFC

We're crowdfunding to purchase metal fencing to surround Morriston Town AFC club and football pitch. Help us protect our ground so that our senior, youth and junior teams can continue to play!

Morriston Delivery stage

pledged of £8,827

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

I'm applying on behalf of Morriston Town AFC which runs from The Dingle, Off Clydach Road in Morriston. We are a voluntary run club with 3 senior football teams, a youth team, 3 junior teams, a darts and pool team all running from the club. The club also hosts youth groups and children's parties. For years we have experienced antisocial behaviour on the grounds but recently this has got worse due to the fence being blown down in the bad weather at the start of the year. There is now no fence around the premises at all. We have priced up a new fence which will cost £8800 for materials alone, which we simply cannot afford. Almost on a daily basis we are experiencing fires, smashed bottles, litter, drug use, criminal damage, motorbikes turning up the pitch which all have to be rectified by committee members. It's a danger to all who use the club, especially the young children in the junior section who train and play here and constantly have to look out for broken glass, drug paraphernalia

What we'll deliver:

  • Metal fencing

Why it's a great idea:

It will prevent the antisocial behaviour that the club regularly faces, including fires, break ins, litter, smashed glass and noise. The local neighbours are desperate for something to happen. The children always have to avoid certain areas, or committee have to do a check before any training etc which is frustrating and dangerous if something is missed.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying the fence
