Volunteering in Shropshire

VOLUNTEERS ARE THE BACKBONE OF GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL. 

Without the time, dedication and commitment Volunteers demonstrate each and every week across our county, Clubs and Leagues would simply not exist.
 
A Football Club or League is about more than just the players on the pitch. Volunteers really make football happen and help to create the next generation of sporting stars.
It’s usually the case that a few people at a club do a lot of the work – If you’re in this position it can often feel overwhelming. There are loads of reasons to volunteer too and recruiting new volunteers with the right skills to help out can be a significant help.
