Each year we award the Photo of the Season which is judged by the previous year’s winner. With the large number of photos we receive for the gallery the task would be almost impossible to undertake so we are therefore asking you to choose your best five photos and submit them for judging.

Please take note of the following before sending in your photos:
1. The photo must currently be displayed on the Gallery.
2. The photo must be of a Toolstation Western League Match or Les Phillips Cup Match.

Each photo you submit must include the following information:
1. The date of the match.
2. The names of the two teams.
3. Whether it is a League Match or Les Phillips Cup Match.

Email your five photos to: webmaster@toolstationleague.com

Grant Application Service

The Grant Application Service has been in place for three years now and in that time it has helped a number of clubs in the Western League to achieve successful grant awards totalling £500k

The Service provides advice and guidance to clubs who are looking to update their infrastructure as well as hands on management where required.

The Service can provide advice on all aspeces of grant funding, including planning, finding suppliers and completion of all necessary documents to run your project or prepare documents for the Football Association or other lottery funds.

There is no cost at the initial stage and where a more hands on approach is required in general the costs are low, as costs can be claimed back from the grant received.

Clubs we have assisted so far include Barnstaple, Gillingham, Oldland Abbotonians, Keynsham, Street, Cheddar, Plymouth Parkway.

If you would like to discuss your club's infrastructure needs and funding, please call Steve Nicholls on 07454320934 or Martin on 07754543719
