Sponsorship and Sports Chaplaincy

We were very pleased to welcome a new pitchside advertiser this week, in the form of Falkirk Vineyard Church who meet in the nearby Camelon Community Centre.  As part of their Christian faith and outreach, they support people and organisations in and around Falkirk, and have made many links with groups around Camelon since relocating to the Community Centre in August 2017.  Their Senior Pastor, Andrew McNinch, who leads the Church together with his wife Lorraine, took no time at all to approve this support of the Football Club for the next 2 years.  He enjoys watching a match at Carmuirs Park – what he describes as “real and proper football” (well, he is a Liverpool fan!) – along with a pie and a cup of bovril, but more than that, as a Community focused church, he was more than happy, along with the trustees of the Church, to financially support a Community focused football club.

For the club, Chairman Alex Graham says “we’re really grateful for all our sponsors and advertisers.  There’s not a lot of money around in the Junior League so this help is really beneficial for the club and we’d love to welcome even more companies or organisations to support us in this way.  It’s great too when they can offer that wee bit more as well in terms of developing our place as a local community club.”

In addition to providing sponsorship by placing this pitchside board at Carmuirs Park, Falkirk Vineyard Church also provide and support our Club Chaplain, Dan Rous, who has been with the club for a few months.  He is a member of the Church and a Camelon resident, and is serving and supporting the club at all levels as required, and helping to build links in the community.  He’s a regular face at our Thursday training sessions and at all home games, plus attends to a number of tasks behind the scenes including running our Social Media.  He is there to lend a confidential listening ear to players, management and committee alike, and to provide an encouraging word when needed.  Sports Chaplaincy is growing across the Sport, with over 110 chaplains in football clubs in Scotland alone.  We at Camelon Juniors FC are very pleased to be benefiting from Dan’s voluntary support of everyone at the club.
