The PFC Trust & Sports Council Funding Programme

Talented athletes from Hartlepool are being encouraged to apply for funding before the May 6 deadline.


And a gifted golfer and runner who have previously been recipients of the Sports Council funding programme have highlighted how it has benefitted them.


The fund aims to give assistance to talented sports people within Hartlepool.


It is intended for people who are gifted in their chosen sport to enable them to compete at the highest level and to help achieve their maximum potential.


Applicants competing at a regional, national and international level will be eligible to apply for funding support.

It can cover travel expenses, coaching fees, specialist equipment, sports kit and competition fees.


The next round of athlete funding is now open, with applications closing on Friday, May 6.

Last year golfer Shannon O’Dwyer was helped to compete at a high level.


She said: “To play a full season of tournaments is a huge expense so any funding towards this is much appreciated.


“I used the money towards a winter practice trip to Spain. During this trip I was able to prepare for the 2022 season, which will be my first year as a professional golfer.


“Applying for the grant was a really easy process that I would recommend to any other athletes that are looking for funding to help them develop in their chosen sport.”


And Hartlepool Athletics Club’s Scott Temple was grateful for what he received to achieve the standards he did.


He said: “The grant funding was predominantly spent on some new trainers, sprinting blocks and travel costs for competition.


“The application process was fairly easy and I had no problems applying for this grant.


“I believe the grant has massively helped me achieve my aims as the trainers and blocks have been fundamental to my training, so I have worked at a higher standard and overall improving.


“It also allowed me to travel to places such as Sheffield a few times over the last few months and therefore got me a medal at the Northern Indoor Under-20s Championships for 800m.


“I would highly recommend any other club or sportsperson to apply for the grant, because it’s an extremely simple process and can thankfully provide however much funding you need to take you to the next step/level and help you achieve your aims.”
