Community Engagement High on Club Plans

Over the previous months several hardworking volunteers have been supporting the growth of local clubs in North East Wales. After a long and detailed consultation period in 2012, local Club Development Officer Mark Roberts identified, alongside three of the area’s Premier Clubs, specific areas of development to support the growth of a club. Gap Connahs Quay, Cefn Druids FC and Airbus UK Broughton FC, have been highlighted for such support and are now starting to see the benefits of such developments.

One club In particular has started to make huge inroads into local development, and that is Welsh Premier League side Airbus UK Broughton Football Club, who are proud to announce the launch of their new community initiative, ‘The Junior Wing-Maker Membership.’

Airbus UK Broughton Football Club CEO, Stuart Roberts explains “As the club continues to grow and progress on the field, we are looking to develop our off-field engagement and view the local community as a key aspect to the future growth and development of our football club.”

The Junior Wing-Maker membership offers children the opportunity to access sporting and educational opportunities through Airbus UK Broughton Football Club. These exclusive benefits include free entry to selected home matches at the Hollingsworth Group Stadium, free entry to all Welsh Youth International matches played at Airbus UK FC and exclusive access to news and information surrounding the football club.



A key partner in this programme has been Welsh Football Trust. Identified volunteer James Roberts, briefly explains the format of the membership. “As a valued member of the Junior Wing-Makers you will receive free professional coaching sessions from our academy coaches, discounted prices on all soccer camps and birthday functions hosted by Airbus UK Broughton Football Club, and the opportunity to accompany the first team players’ onto the pitch prior to a game. “

The initial launch of the membership at the recent televised home fixture against current league leaders TNS proved a great success with a club record attendance in excess of 620, of which over 50% where children actively engaged as guests of the football club and Junior Wing-Maker Membership, a success which the club will strive to develop into the wider community.

North East Wales, Club Development Officer Mark Roberts added, “The aim of the programme when originally developed, was to support the growth of the three larger clubs within the local region in particular areas of development which their current structure does not allow. Along side this we have been able to develop community specific initiatives to support the development of local area growth in participation and really using the local clubs as a vehicle to drive this forward.”
