Thanks to Castle for backing our development plan

In a time of economic downturn and opportunity I would like to thank Tim Harrison Jones from Warwick Castle for investing in the community of Warwick, especially the junior section of Racing Club Warwick FC since 2011.

The club has been running since 1919, is located in Warwick West and in that time we have had over 17,000 different young people use our training facilities, come along to our training sessions or watch one of our three (1st/Reserve/Youth) adult Midlands Combination Premiership league teams. The club also has very strong links to its local community and to Myton and Aylesford Schools.

The club is embarking on a five year sport development plan with support from our key sponsor Warwick Castle to encourage home grown talent within the area and offer children a route into sporting training by via the junior section.

The IMD 2010 shows that Warwick West has the highest level of deprivation in Warwickshire with a ranking of 109 out of the 326 areas within local authority districts in England.

Warwick Castle is a major presence in the town and the partnership link since 2011 has helped set up two boys’ and one girls’ team. The U15s will be crowned champions by May and the U14s will finish in the top three - not bad for new teams.

In 2013 we hope to expand by having another three boys’ teams to meet demand in Warwick.

The investment will help the club expand the junior section and fund improvement in much needed equipment. The return on investment won’t always translate directly into pounds but will help the community by helping children into sport rather than anti-social behaviour which has decreased by 150 per cent. The link is a long term relationship and as such many of the benefits will come in the long term for Warwick.

We at Racing Club Warwick FC look forward to building a longer lasting relationship with our partners for the benefit of the community. We wish to thank Warwick Castle , Warrington’s of Warwick, St Johns Fish Bar and Bombay Express for investing in the children of Warwick
