Bosham FC can get back on their feet ... with YOUR help

Bosham Football Club are trying to get back on their feet after the blow of being relegated from the Sussex League – and are looking for people who can help them prosper.

The Walton Lane outfit are seeking people who can help keep the club playing such a big part in the local community.

They are searching volunteers who would like to be a part of a local village organisation, no matter how small a part – whether it be helping with fundraising, raffles or selling programmes on matchdays.

As reported last week, the Sussex League have had to relegate them into the premier division of the West Sussex League because their ground did not meet new national requirements for their level.

A slightly-too-small dressing room and lack of a permanent toilet in the referee’s room were enough to seal their fate.

They finished 11th out of 16 in division three, but have been relegated because they were the lowest-placed of five sides in the division whose grounds did not meet FA rules.

But the Robins came out fighting and looking for new blood to help them enter a new era.

There are no end of tasks that need doing, even going as far as the simple job of putting up the corner flags.

The club are also seeking committee members to help run the club behind the scenes and would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in getting on board for next season.

Roles up for grabs include youth secretary, club secretary and others.

Bosham FC’s facilities are also available at any time for small parties or functions.

If you think you can help, contact Geraldine Doncaster on 01243 699078.

Bosham are also seeking new and aspiring youth teams to join their competitive Arun & Chichester Youth League set-up.

They are interested in helping teams from under-eight through to under-15 level. They say they have excellent facilities and quality pitch.
