The sun shone on the footballing stars of the future at the fifth annual free football event for the children of Stockport Homes’ tenants and leaseholders, which was held on 22 August at Stockport Sports Village, Woodley.
The event was organised by Stockport Homes in partnership with Stockport County Football Club and Life Leisure. It was a shooting success with 74 young people aged 8-14 taking part in a range of activities including:
- free professional coaching with Stockport County coaches and players;
- penalty shoot out; and
- mini football tournament.
All the children who took part received a medal, certificate and goody bag with two free tickets to see Stockport County.
Jennifer Boswell, Caretaking Manager, Stockport Homes said, "The day was a fantastic success with 74 young people from across the Borough taking part. The day was filled with lots of different activities, including a penalty shoot and a mini tournament. The event is always a fantastic opportunity for young people to learn new skills, meet new people and enjoy being active. We look forward to hosting the event again next year!"
