Over 80 young people took part in a free fun football afternoon in Stockport over the Summer Holidays. The event was organised by Stockport Homes in partnership with Stockport County Community Foundation and the Power League.

 The football sessions gave the children, aged from 6 - 15, a chance to get professional coaching from Stockport County Community Foundation and take part in a small football tournament, structured coaching session, and penalty shootout competition. Every child attending the Stockport Homes Soccer event received free tickets to watch Stockport County at Edgeley Park.

 The event gave children something active and positive to take part in the Summer Holiday and is part of Stockport Homes plans to provide positive activities to help build communities and discourage anti-social behaviour.

 Jennifer Boswell Caretaking Services Manager at Stockport Homes said 

“I am so pleased that the Football Event our Caretaking Team run for young people in Stockport is still so successful, in its 7th year running.

 Our Customer Involvement Team ensures that a wide range of children can access the event, and over 80 children aged between 6 and 15 participated this year!

 Stockport County Community Foundation always ensures there is plenty of fun to be had at the event! As well as learning lots of new skills from the coaches, the children took part in a tense penalty shoot-out - with winners in each group awarded with a trophy!

 We look forward to our next event, which will be held during half term in February 2017!”

 Matthew Bailey Assistant Community Foundation Manager said “All participants had a fantastic time.  All the Young people that took part in the soccer day had a great experience learning new skills from our Community Foundation team.  We are really happy to work with Stockport Homes and are looking forward to working with them in the future on many more positive events for the the customers of Stockport Homes."

 Thank you to Stockport Homes and Power League, Stockport for their continued support of the Community Foundation here at Stockport County.
