The young people have all been given access to a high level of coaching and have competed against each other in organised small sided games, have been introduced to several new sports / activities and had visits from Jim Gannon (Stockport County Manager) and Jordan Raines (Great Britain Paralympian).

The youngsters are set to leant further new skills over the next month and are due to tackle their footy skills against Man United and learn other new skills from a host of personalities / agencies which should positively impact on the youngsters lives / learning........ Watch this space for further progress updates.

Dave Longbone, Senior Community Partnership Co-ordinator said "I am really pleased with the take up of the project. There is now transport available from Harpur Hill and Fairfield (leaving Parks Inn and Victoria Road Shops) at 5.40pm and returning at 9.15pm every Wednesday and Friday, so there are no excuses for any young person aged between 10 - 19 years not to attend".
