St Blazey Football Club decided, at the end of last season, to work with M&N services, a community consultancy business that specialises in sport and leisure to develop a three year development plan. The plan outlines the priorities for the club in the next 3 years and identify s who is responsible for its delivery. The plan was devised after a series of consultation events with the committee members, spectators, volunteers, local councilors, and residents of St Blazey.

The club is determined to develop its community links and over the course of the season we shall share progress, the aspirations contained within the development plan and the areas of work it covers. Today’s piece talks about our strap line and why it is important.

During the consultation it became clear that the club was extremely proud of its past, and rightly so. However, it also appeared, and was acknowledged by everyone involved in providing thoughts that this also meant that on to many occasions when looking at the way forward the conversion would start with, ‘In the old days we did it this way’. As a result, the club in certain areas of its work, has not adapted to the changing times and this has lead to the club falling behind others in terms of performance, facility development and community engagement.

The club decided they wish to not forget the past but to look to the future and therefore its strap line that will appear in its promotional material is

Proud of the past, excited about the future.

The club has ambitious  future plans and had managed to engage with people within our community that can make this happen. The club hopes that our supporters will enjoy reading about these plans on our web page through out the year.

The new season is always an optimistic time. Previous disappoint -ments become a distant memory and as a true supporter we always look forward to the new season with optimism. Have we found the forward who will guarantee 40 goals a season, the goalkeeper that is good in the air, and, the next creative genius in midfield?

Whether we have or not, the one thing that does not change is the constant need to raise funds for our club. The club has appointed me as Commercial Manager for the forthcoming season and I really hope that I can generate funding to support the teams that play under the St Blazey banner. In addition, with all the exciting developments high lighted in the development plan, all money raised will speed up these developments into becoming reality.

My main priority, over the next month is to get our players sponsored. The cost of sponsorship is £30 and for this you get a photo with the player and your name in the program, each home game. In addition, you will be invited to our sponsors event, later in the season as well as discounts to fundraising/social events.

If you are interested in finding out more about our sponsorship’s, we have a brochure advertising all our opportunities.

Please feel free to call me on 07734151245.

Some good news to report, we already have ten companies committed to advertising boards, around the ground, and these will be listed in the match day programme.
