Former England boss Graham Taylor backs Football Foundation scheme to boost grassroots sport

Former England manager Graham Taylor is backing a new initiative which will aid grassroots sports clubs in Mansfield and Ashfield

The Football Foundation Club Cashback scheme aims to generate a cashback reward for club every time a purchase is made online with selected retailers.

Clubs need to sign up online before browsing the ‘club cashback’ section for retailers, which include Tesco, Marks & Spencer; and B&Q.

Graham Taylor OBE, said: “With Christmas fast approaching, the Football Foundation’s Club Cashback is the perfect opportunity to turn some of your festive purchases into a cashback reward for your club.

“All you need to do is sign up and encourage your players, volunteers and their families, to shop through your Cashback portal.

“In these austere times every penny really does count, and Club Cashback gives between 1-15 per cent of the total sales value of your purchase.

So, what better way to start the New Year than with extra money to buy some new footballs or portable goals?

“All the best initiatives are simple ones, and Club Cashback is just that – an easy-to-use scheme which helps secure the sustainability of grassroots clubs in Nottinghamshire.”
