Prescot Cables FC have been awarded £10,000 worth of building materials following a successful application to the Buildbase Non-league Club Renovation Programme.

The club were chosen, along with nine other clubs who compete in the Buildbase FA Trophy and Vase competitions, by judges from Buildbase and the FA.

Cables were chosen because of the massive impact the resources will have on the local community.

The club plans to use the materials to renovate the facilities at its home stadium Valerie Park.

In particular, there will be work on the changing facilities so they are more suitable for women.

The Prescot-based team have trialed female youth teams and have aspirations of starting more women’s teams at different ages.

Former Cables board-member and lifelong supporter David Williams said: “This is fantastic news.

“It will enable the club to have the proper facilities for the women’s teams.

“It is an exciting time for the club, the new facilities should allow for lots of opportunities in the local community.”

It is much-needed positive news for Cables who have had a poor season on the pitch so far.

They are currently 18th in the Northern Premier League – West with only eight matches remaining.

They will be hoping to add to their six wins and two draws before the end of the season and claim enough points to avoid relegation from the division.

Buildbase’s Wigan branch will be assisting the club with guidance, information, and will also provide them with the resources.

The company have run the program since becoming the sponsor of the FA Vase and Trophy in 2016, and have helped many clubs since then including Needham Market FC and Cheadle Town FC.
