Horncastle Town Football Club appeals for support in bid for new club facilities
HORNCASTLE Town Football Club is asking for public support to help its vision of new club facilities come to fruition.
After years of campaigning the club has finally been identified by the Football Association as a priority project for capital support.
If the club receives the support it will see the existing clubhouse demolished and replaced by a large four-changing room facility.
The club now has until September this year to work with the FA to submit its final application to the Football Foundation to complete the funding package for the development.

Chairman of the club Colin Low said: "I am very proud of the club and the role we play in the wider area, particularly for youth development and bringing together a cross-section of our community.
"We hold FA Charter Standard and will shortly be awarded Development Charter Standard, being the second level of three, the FA awards to clubs.
"The growth of the club in recent years has highlighted the inadequacies of the current clubhouse and changing facilities, which are too small, very basic and in reality have outlived their useful life."
Although no final plan has been made the build is set to run into hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Colin added: "An important part of our application will be evidence of support for the project in the community.
"We are already canvassing for letters of support and have received some from local schools, and organisations.
"We have begun a number of fundraising initiatives which will be announced very shortly including sponsored bicycle rides and opportunities for businesses or individuals to purchase personalised bricks to be displayed in the new building."
The club also hopes that the funding will stretch to a new bar and community function rooms.
Colin said: "All support for our fundraising and football club in general will be greatly appreciated.
"We have an excellent opportunity to get the facilities a large community club such as ours deserves."
