In light of the recent lockdown restrictions, our Youth Group, Learn 2 Live has recently restarted our popular football club. The club is hosted by the University of Northampton and coached by Northampton Town FC Community Trust. this project is funded by Northamptonshire sport who have been actively engaging children and young people who have been particularly negatively impacted by the COVID19 pandemic.
At our first session back we had 12 young people attend, all of whom really enjoyed the session. We know that football and sport is a powerful tool for building strong communities and this has proven itself through our club. The sport allows people to play together, learn skills, build friendships and engage in activities which are beneficial for wellbeing.
