Walsall FC Foundation Since 1989
Walsall FC Foundation was formed in 1989 as the registered charity of Walsall Football Club. The scheme was founded by former goalkeeper and club legend Mick Kearns, in line with Walsall FC’s move to the Bescot Stadium from previous ground Fellows Park. From the outset, WFC Foundation had a clear vision which remains to this day:
“To use the vehicle of sport and physical activity to make a positive difference to the lives of people within the Walsall community.”
From humble beginnings and just two full-time members of staff, WFC Foundation has grown to include 17 full-time staff, from managers and officers, to first and second-year apprentices as part our nationally recognised apprenticeship scheme. This is complimented by a bank of casual coaches helping to deliver sport and engagement provision.
