Junction Elite FC launches fundraising drive to provide free football for 15-25 year olds

Junction Elite have launched a fundraising drive which will help them provide free football for youths of all ages in London.

The club, based in Battersea and Clapham, is open for anyone between the age of 15-25.

Junction Elite are raising money to cover everything – from insurance fees to kit equipment and the cost of pitch hire and booking
referees – for their four teams.

They are looking for sponsorship, donations and raffle prizes from local businesses and have created a JustGiving page www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/junctionelite – which is aiming to raise £3,000.

Elite’s appeal states: “We already have had a successful first season winning the league and cup double.

We have 35 players U18 or in full-time education who we do not charge, and these lads are getting football up to three times a week.

“Our local area is becoming more dangerous for young people. We are doing our bit to stop them just hanging around attracting trouble.”
