NORTH East Herts MP, Oliver Heald is calling on football clubs throughout North East Herts to apply for Football Foundation grants.

The Football Foundation is the UK's largest sports charity and is funded by the Football Association, Premier League and the government.

The Foundation plays a key role in the development and revitalisation of grass roots sports and in recent years has invested in a number of parks, schools and playing fields. They have also issued grants for changing rooms, community projects, floodlights and pitch drainage.

Mr Heald said: "I am keen to publicise the grant schemes run by the Football Association as I know that sporting clubs are always on the lookout for financial support. I would encourage all clubs to look into these grants."

Some of the schemes on offer include, the Junior Kit Scheme, Small Grants Scheme, Barclays Spaces for Sport Scheme and the Capital Projects Scheme.
