Newark Flowserve bids for Buildbase £100k renovation programme
Newark Flowserve Football Club has entered a national competition to win a share of £100,000.
Flowserve plays its football at Lowfields, on Hawton Lane, and has entered the running to win this season’s Buildbase Transfer Deal Programme, which gives four non-league clubs £25,000 each of building materials.
Judges, including those from Buildbase and the FA, will be looking for clubs that demonstrate a feasible renovation project that benefits players and supporters as well as the local community.
Flowserve has outlined its renovation plans, which involves creating a large, local community club for all ages to get into sport for both physical, social and mental benefits.
Fans can support its application through the Buildbase website.
The club with the most votes will score a golden ticket, which gives automatic entry to the final.
The Buildbase £100k Transfer Deal is open to clubs taking part in the FA Trophy and FA Vase.
Six clubs will be shortlisted and invited to pitch their renovation plans to a panel of judges at Wembley Stadium in December.
Ian McConville, procurement director at Buildbase, said: “Non-league football clubs mean so much to the communities around them, but they are often in dire need of help.”
