Mumbles Rangers FC receive SwansAid grant
Mumbles Rangers FC have been presented with a grant of £2,000 courtesy of SwansAid.
Receiving their grant from club ambassador Lee Trundle, Mumbles Rangers will use the money to finance coaching qualifications.
“It will enable us to get very close to our aim of having over 20 Class B/C Welsh FA accredited coaches attached to Mumbles Rangers Boys and Girls Club,” said Chris Parkin from the Club.
Using the funds to revalidate the qualifications of their coaches that work with the football club, the grant will benefit both the coaches and the players that represent the Club in their array of youth teams.
“This enables coaches to become more proficient and encourages players to improve personal skills to become the best they can be,” Chris continued.
“In recent years the Club has seen a benefit from this policy with over 40 players currently playing for local Development, Schoolboy, Schoolgirl and Academy squads. Six players have also achieved Welsh Caps.”
Additionally, this ethos of building character and pride within the Club has led their teams to successfully compete for local league titles and cups in recent seasons and it is now hoped that the SwansAid funds will help them to continue their great work in developing young footballers.
“Without the help and assistance of groups such as SwansAid, the achievement of better facilities, better skills and better lifestyles would be so difficult,” Chris added.
“SwansAid looks to improve communities and helps promote this better life and Mumbles Rangers are pleased to partner with SwansAid to achieve these aims,” he finished.
