AFC Totton has plans for the future of its grounds and for the club itself. These plans include an expansion of the its main stand, new facilities, feeding the community and raising money for charity.

Steve Brookwell, Chairman of AFC Totton, outlined the club’s prior community work, the club’s relationship with Southampton FC and the club’s plans for the future.

He said the club will also look to build an educational centre, an indoor gym, kitchens and facilities to help people rehabilitate from heart disease upon their relocation from hospital.

He said: "We also want to increase catering facilities there, to provide space for functions such as birthdays and weddings, and feed the local community, especially homeless people and vulnerable children.

"We want the club to become a hub of the community and the home of sport for all."

He added: “We want to keep the club open for the local community. In the past we’ve delivered 5000 parcels to the NHS, held vaccinations, organised disability football, organised walk in football and raised £10,000 for Hampshire Hospice."

Explaining the relationship between AFC Totton and Southampton FC, Steve added: “Saints joined us on this journey a while ago. We’ve got an academy with 30 students and an intake of 60 more. So that will provide employment and education in the area.”
