Since July 2010 the project has seen close to 300 different young people attend which provides a productive outlet for young people on a Friday night. The biggest success of this project is the transfer of around 45 players from the informal nights who have joined local football teams and created their own 5 a side teams for the regular AGP league. Local team managers partner with the project to advertise their clubs and find new players. The project is supported by the local police Safer Communities team.
The project currently costs a minimum of £84 per week to run utilising volunteers to mainly run the night with one paid member of qualified staff on site. If you are interested in sponsoring the project please get in touch.
If you are interested in getting involved as a player or partner club please also get in touch.
