Help Shildon AFC and your community

Help Shildon AFC and help your community

These are extreme and unprecedented times for us all and firstly the thoughts of everyone at the Club are with those who have lost family and friends or indeed are struggling with social isolation. We wish to place on record our appreciation for the fantastic efforts of not only the amazing staff at the NHS but also the Care Workers in our community and other key workers who put their lives on the line every day.  Thank you!


Shildon AFC, like many other Clubs has been massively affected by this crisis but unlike many also were cruelly denied promotion which effected us financially and mentally.


We are a proud town and we will come back stronger but we need your help. We have had every revenue stream turned off over the last couple of months but we are still determined to build a team that you can be proud of and to invest in our ground to make the experience for players and supporters the best that it can be. 


We have lost the following;

- Gate receipts for the last 5 games which would have been higher than average given that we were on the verge of promotion 


- Bar and function income 


- Our contribution towards running Holiday courses for children in Shildon over the Easter Holidays 


We have to find the money to fund;


-Refurbishment and redecoration of the clubhouse


-New floors for the dressing rooms


-Repairs to our grounds maintenance equipment


-  New goal posts


- Pitch maintenance works


- Repairs to the Hospitality suite roof 


- Repairs to the perimeter boards  


If you could help support us within this, no matter how little, that would be extremely appreciated, and in return we will give something back to you our community. We will donate 20% of the monies raised to our Club Charity, Team Solan, who provide an invaluable service to cancer sufferers and their families in Shildon and the surrounding areas.


We will also offer you the following;


£115 - 4 complimentary Tickets within our platinum suite 


£100 donation - One adult season ticket and a child for free 


£ 75 donation - Match Ball sponsor plus 5-pint cheques 


£50 a VIP day for 2 guests (free drink on arrival) entry to the platinum suite at half time for refreshments, 2 seats on the director's row for the game.


We want to complete what we started last season and your help with raising vital funds will go along way to achieving this 


Many thanks
