We are delighted to announce that Burgess Hill Town has won the Grassroots Club of the Year Award as part of England Football’s Grassroots Football Awards.
This Award looks to highlight a club that sits at the heart of its community providing an opportunity for all to get involved.
A recipient of the first ever equality, diversity and inclusion charter in the UK awarded by the Sussex County FA, Burgess Hill Town has now also taken the steps to invest and create its own well-being centre called The Huddl.
The Huddl works directly with children and families who need support, with a clinical child psychotherapist and personal trainer/nutrition coach assigned to work with kids across a number of mind, body and soul initiatives to make them more confident, resilient and happy.
The club has successfully worked with over 20 children with the program last season, providing families with a welcome source of support.
On the pitch, they’ve now got over 100 over-30s active who were not playing the sport, by opening a dedicated Over-30s section.
The club also started ‘BobCats’, an over-30s football program that now has over 100 participants, along with also growing its girls and women section to over 150 players, and its junior section to over 500 players and 39 teams.
