Alison Davison 47, of Chandler’s Ford has been named as Eastleigh Football Club Community Captain in recognition of their incredible work with the Eastleigh Football Club Community Trust Pan Disability Football League.
The Community Captain accolade is being given to more than 100 members of the public who have made an outstanding contribution to their club and local community, as part of the Premier League’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
Alison received the accolade at The Silverlake Stadium where she received a PL30 Community Captain armband and pennant.
Lee Bradbury who presented Alison’s Community Captain award, said: “The work Alison does, with not only the football club’s disability team but the wider community, is fantastic and so worthwhile for those who are not able to access mainstream football. I am really pleased to be able to reward Alison with the Community Captain accolade for the work she does in our community.
Alison said “It is a privilege to have been chosen to be the Community Captain for the Club. Being a part of the Disability Football is such an honour as there are so many inspirational children and adults, all with their own stories, who play on a monthly basis under the Eastleigh FC Community Trust Pan Disability Football League. We are not stopping at football, our next venture is ParaNetball which will offer so many more children and adults an avenue to an active lifestyle.
Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: “As we mark 30 years since the Premier League first kicked off, it is important we celebrate the unsung heroes who deliver brilliant work in their communities. These people – whether they are participants, coaches, volunteers or long-time employees – are the lifeblood of their clubs and their communities.
“The continued success of Premier League football enables us to provide unprecedented investment in communities and wider football. As we look to the future, we are committed to investing more than ever, to help develop the game and provide opportunities to people of all ages.
Across England and Wales, Premier League investment supports the community organisations of all 92 Premier League and English Football League clubs, plus the 72 National League clubs.
Over the next three years, the League will continue its world-leading levels of support by contributing £1.6 billion to communities and the wider game.
A sum of £9m is available to support National League clubs with running costs and sustainability. A further £3.6m will be available via the Premier League and Professional Footballers’ Association’s partnership to support the National League Trust and the network of club community organisations.
This includes increased investment into the Premier League Fans’ Fund, with £5m available to support fan engagement projects across the top four divisions of the football pyramid. The League is also investing an additional £13.5 million into the Football Foundation to create small-sided pitches in the heart of communities that need them the most. The tour will also give an opportunity to highlight new Premier League investment into women’s and girls’ football, including the Emerging Talent Centres announced earlier this summer.
