Over £35m raised for good causes through easyfundraising
41 years ago a group of 11 men took it onboard to start Crusaders FC. The early were tough trying to keep the teams head above water with the limited resources and funds available. Over the years Crusaders FC decided to start youth football, then year by year added new age groups, over the years we have had youth teams in all ages playing football and training all under the Crusaders FC banner from around the South/West Birmingham area. Fourteen seasons ago we took another big step and started a girls section, we have not looked back since and the enthusiasm and dedication of all the players in the youth teams have made it worthwhile. In the eleven years, that same team has blossomed into a successful Ladies team who have achieved several promotions and now playing in the West Midlands Womens Premier Football League which is a very good standard of football. Last season, as the Crusaders Football Committee we made a commitment that over the next 3 years we will add one more age group into the club year on year; this will help local boys and girls to be part of Crusaders FC and enjoy the great game of football and all it can offer. After starting up a brand new Under 8s team last year we are very much on track to hit our key objectives. We are now planting the seeds to attract more local youth over the summer in order to kick start a brand new team again for the 2017 / 2018 season. The increase in costs last season has hit Crusaders hard as we made a loss, and again this year with the additional public liability insurance the FA has imposed on all clubs as well as the increase in referee fees and pitch fees, we will need to focus on additional fund raising. In the real world we would love to let the youngsters play football for free but we can not, we have to pay league fees, pitch fees, referee fees and Insurance as well as purchase equipment, but we always try and keep subs down to a minimum to help the youngsters and families enjoy this lovely game.
