    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Allestree Men's FC have play in the Midlands Regional Alliance, the club is over 100 years old and effectively ran by long term volunteer Tom Beauchamp. The players currently pay £10 per week to contribute to the increasing costs of the club. Due to no grass pitches available in the Allestree area the clubs' home pitch is located in Duffield. The costs of pitch hire; training hire; match officials plus equipment and declining player numbers mean the club is facing being wound up. We appreciate every other club and sport faces the same challenges and that disposable income for many is low, however any donation or support to enable to club to continue to be the oldest standing club in the league would be greatly appreciated. In return for your donations we offer you a place in our annual bonus ball draw, sponsorship locations on playing shirts or raffle tickets in our annual fundraiser. Please let us know in the comments section if you would be interested. Follow clubs news via twitter @Allestreefc

      I was the club mascot in the early 80s, and while the club is obviously no longer able to avail itself of my 10 year old-self's cute bowl haircut and sparrow legs, it was a huge part of my childhood.

      My Dad played for AFC in the 40s and 50s and was the captain for some time. Good luck with the fund raising.
