Football crazy: Reds Foundation takes the Beautiful Game back to school

Ross Crawford 25th Jan, 2020   0

A NEW initiative to get more girls and boys playing football has been launched by Redditch United.

The move is being driven locally by the Reds Foundation which aims to encourage greater participation in the beautiful game by both boys and girls.

“We started by focusing on the boys and we now have 30 to 40 coming down on a Monday night and being developed by FA approved coaches,” said Alan Williams from United’s Reds Foundation.

“We now want to focus on girls and get them to leave the classroom behind, forget about the computer and come on down and give it a try.”

The initiative is also seeing the Foundation going into schools – initially the Vaynor School and Matchborough Infants to further encourage both boys and girls to have fun by having a go at the game.

The sessions for the girls are every Friday evening at the Trico Stadium, Bromsgrove Road, Redditch B97 4RN from 6pm to to 7pm on the club’s 3G pitch each week.
