During the 2021/22 season, due to the fantastic support of many fans, the BPA Development Fund were able to make a significant donation to the club which was used to secure the initial signings of Simon Richman, Sam Fielding and Harrison Hopper.
Pre-season conversations with Gareth Roberts and the management team confirmed that the costs of maintaining a competitive team at this level continue to rise. Mark and Danny did a brilliant job retaining the core of the team from last season and are always looking for new players to come in and strengthen the team where finances allow.
With your support through donations and our other fundraising activities, we can continue to assist with increasing the initial budget which does make a difference in bringing in the quality of player required at our level.
The BPA Development Fund initially paid £2k into the fund at the start of this season, and has committed several thousand more towards additions made since the season commenced. This is an ongoing process, and any further donations would be made available to the club as/if felt further team strengthening was necessary. Several supporters have recently enquired as to how to they can do this, especially as our squad is low on numbers currently.
Donations are administered by the BPA Development Fund, with funds being donated to the club when agreed between both parties. At no stage do any of the Development Fund Group have any say in players being considered etc. Should any funds remain at the end of the season, such funds would be carried forward to the following season.
