Magpies in Need

The ‘Magpies in Need’ account is a new initiative that has been set up by the Sherwood Juniors AFC and will be again operating during the 2017 season.

The aim of the account is to gain funding to help out parents who have kids playing at the Sherwood AFC who are in need of financial assistance. 

The ‘Magpies in Need’ account can be used to help families with financial hardships with Sherwood Juniors AFC registration fees, the extra costs that are involved when a player is selected in representative squads and to help with the shortfall in medical insurance costs when a player is injured either playing or training for the Sherwood Juniors AFC. 

A clear set of guideline will be set up by the Sherwood AFC board and assistance needs to be applied for in writing to

All applications for assistance will be kept strictly confidential.
