Erith Town Community Partnerships Gather Pace.
During the 2023/24 pre-season campaign, the Community team at Erith Town have been working hard to build on the already solid foundations in the areas of Erith, Thamesmead and beyond.
Along with the recent success of our Community Day fixture with Sittingbourne FC, where more than 300 fans enjoyed the match and the other activities provided for free by the club, we have also sent a large number of season tickets to pupils and community projects for young fans to come along and support The Dockers in what will be an exciting SCEFL Premier Division campaign.
Another initiative that we have established for the upcoming season and beyond is Community Partnerships; a concept that will see us work alongside establishments in the area and continue our quest to be a strong pillar for local residents. By achieving this, the club will continue to succeed both on and off the field, creating potential pathways for young players who want to continue their journey in the game.
Speaking about the Community Partnerships, Head of Youth & Community, Michael Avery said, “These last few weeks have seen us liaising and engaging with a number of people in the local area, which has been very rewarding. It’s fantastic to speak with so many people who are keen to work with the club as Erith Town has always been known as a club who are welcoming, friendly and inclusive, with an outstanding family feel, so it only felt right to be involved in seeing what we can do for people in the surrounding communities. Whether it’s been schools, scout groups, grassroots teams or even the local PTP swimming project at Birchmere Lake, we want to help out these fantastic establishments the best we can, and also see how we can help those who are interested in developing in football achieve their goals.”
