We would like to draw your attention and encourage you to take part in an e-petition to HM Government, created by David Crausby MP that you can view at the following link. He is calling on the Government to ensure that grass roots football receives financial support from the Premier League. The petition requires at least 100k signatures so that it can be considered for discussion in the House of Commons. At the moment, there are just under 13k signatures.
The Save Grassroots Football website is here.
