Wolves keeping Cannock's youngsters fit and healthy
Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to the future as they begin to give youngsters in Cannock free coaching lessons.
The championship club, who sacked their manager Stale Solbakken after being knocked out of the FA Cup by Luton on Saturday, have gone into partnership with Sanctuary Housing to deliver training sessions to improve the health and fitness of local young people.
The Cannock training sessions will be run by fully qualified coaches and are open to males and females up to the age of 19. Starting on 11 January, the free sessions will take place at Cardinal Griffin School and will run for ten weeks.
Sanctuary's national Football and Fitness project already involves ten football league clubs across the UK.
Wolves have today appointed Doncaster Rovers boss Dean Saunders as their new manager. They currently reside in eighteenth place in the Championship table.
Christa Ripley, Sanctuary’s Head of Housing Operations for the Midlands, said: "It can be difficult for youngsters to find somewhere that allows them to socialise while also being a platform for positive activity, so we are delighted that we have been able to work with the Wolves to bring football and fitness to the area.
"Sessions that have been organised in other parts of the county have been a huge success, helping around 200 young people, so we hope to build on this good work and make a positive difference to further young people’s lives."
