THACKLEY have secured a grant from the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF) to renovate the Hylton Clubhouse at Dennyfield.

They tweeted: "The aim is to again make #ThackleyAFC a venue which is a hub in the community, whether on match day or for birthdays, engagement parties, christenings or more."

This came just after the news that several businesses had signed up to the new Thackley AFC Business Club

And it was a positive weekend all round for the club, with the men's team, women's team and committee members all chipping in to help tidy up the ground and give it a fresh coat of paint.

Several of Bradford's non-league clubs have been working hard during the lockdown period to improve or touch up their grounds.

Liversedge posted several pictures of Clayborn looking in pristine condition last month, after work was done on ensuring the quality of grass was up to standard, while Eccleshill have also been working hard on sorting their pitch out ahead of the new season.

Campion received news last month that they had been handed Pitch Preparation Funding from the FA to help out with their ground.

Slightly further afield, Silsden were awarded a £100,000 grant at the end of April from the FA, to enable them to build things like a new 100-seat stand, hospitality unit, ticket office and standing terracing.

Finally, Steeton are still making progress as they get set for a move to Marley for the 2020/21 season, with turnstiles, a dugout and a 3G pitch all being put in place there.
