VOLUNTEERS

The Toolstation Western League recognises the value of volunteers in running and developing football at every level.

Volunteers are the backbone of grassroots football. Without the time, dedication and commitment volunteers demonstrate each and every week clubs and leagues would simply not exist. A football club or league is about more than just the players on the pitch.

Clubs in the Western League require a varied number of volunteers to fulfil important roles to help them operate and develop. From turnstile operators, PA announcers and serving refreshments to pitch maintenance and general tidying up of the ground.

You can help your local club by becoming part of the Western League ‘Family’ and ensuring that clubs continue to grow and thrive for the benefit of the whole community. Take a look at what volunteer roles need filling at your local club below.

If your club has not listed any volunteer jobs yet, why not contact them directly? You will find their contact details on the individual club pages.

Testimonials

Albert Einstein
Roland Millward Warminster Town
I started out because Warminster Town’s website and twitter account were both inactive. I bought a domain name and started a blog from a supporters view and my Twitter account dedicated to it. I then started broadcasting a number of the games online. The response was fantastic and the club then asked me to help with the website, writing the match report, Facebook and Instagram.

Bob Allard Welton Rovers
I first got involved with Welton around 1998 time, I started doing the match reports about then. I had a little previous experience with the local media in a previous life, but not sports reporting so I thought I would give it a go.

So I started reporting on most of Weltons games home and away and sending copy to the Journal, Somerset Guardian and Sunday Independent. That is the first job for me on a Sunday morning before peeling the potatoes. Of course throw in a radio commentary and sports radio programme now and then and you can see there’s never a dull moment. The thing I would say is keeping the concentration levels going at some of the games is hard work but there is no room for error especially if you miss a goal or get the wrong goal scorer in the Report.
