Sale FC Carrington Training Ground

A Message of Support

As we near our final fundraising week on Crowdfunding. We’ve received a lovely message of support from the Milner family. Ian Milner has left a message on our crowdfunding page after making a generous donation to the club.

We find ourselves in very difficult times and the crowdfunding opportunity is a great way of obtaining financial assistance for the club. My family have been keen followers of Sale FC for a number of years at Heywood Road with 3 generations following the teams exploits over the last 50 years. Sadly we lost both my dad and uncle recently and they were both keen supporters of the club and attended most home fixtures as they lived local to the ground. Its great to see the clubs Redevelopment Project at Carrington to help in the development of players young and old and this will benefit the club in the future . We as a family thought it would be a great way to support the club and have both my dad and uncles name remembered on a plaque at the club they supported for many years and would have donated themselves in some way. The Milners

Rugby is more than just a game. It is a sense of community, support and for many a place where lifelong friendships are made. Thank you to Ian, thank you to your father and uncle for their lifelong support and thank you for your donation to the club.

Who benefits from the crowdfunding?

We’ve recently been fundraising for our renovations at our Carrington Training Centre. The benefits of this redevelopment are massive. If you look at our current Colts squad, many of those boys have been training with us since they were 5 years old! We want to make sure that when your 5 year old gets to 16/17/18 they can benefit from the best facilities in the North West. If you want to donate or get one of our brilliant rewards, then just click the link above or on the website.

Obviously not just boys play rugby and our Sale 1861 team are a testament to that. Tomorrow we’ll have a chat with them and find out what they think of the development at the training ground.

Crowdfunding Announcement

This Monday our Crowdfunding project goes live.

We are raising funds for our Carrington redevelopment to improve the facilities for the Minis and Juniors, Women’s team and for our new girls section coming this season.

This is a massive opportunity for us to really transform Carrington to a state of the art development with Children and Women playing rugby as the focus of our project.

We need to develop our changing rooms and other facilities to accommodate our children’s section as well as the increase in numbers of girls and women training. The facilities currently aren’t up to scratch with Showers that need replacing, rooms that need new flooring and improved access for all members of our club.


Walls have had to be taken down and walls have had to be put up. All of our labour so far has been volunteers who’ve given up their time to help their club. These volunteers have moved walls, replaced tiles and even put in a staircase so far! We need an additional £20-£30,000 funding to ensure we have a facility that we can use for years to come.

Currently used for the tractor garage, this will be redeveloped into an indoor training area for Tricky’s Pups on a Sunday and for everyone else when the weather is bad
