Avanguardian has a pleasure to announce its formal partnership with Barnes Football Club and support their local community goals. We are sponsoring the revival of one of the oldest football clubs in England which will enable developing and promoting local community participation in healthy recreation by providing affordable activities that improve health and social welfare and to provide more social inclusive community that will engage all members regardless of ability or disability, race, religion, gender, age or sexual orientation.
Barnes Football Club was founded in 1862 by Mr. Ebenezer Cobb Morley and it is the sixth oldest club in England. Mr. Morley, who was the club's first captain became the FA's first secretary in 1863 and Barnes FC as such a founding member of the FA. The club took part in the first ever FA Cup in 1871–72 and went on to compete in fourteen of the first fifteen editions of the competition,
This is Avanguardian's first community partnership and we are looking forward to contribute to more community projects in near future.
Come on you Knights!
