Manchester United Foundation
We are pleased to have created links to the MU Foundation over at Old Trafford. The original contact was with Foundation Coach, Robert Curran, who was the Hub Officer for the MU Foundation, based at Astley Sports College in Dukinfield.
Through this contact, we have arranged an annual Teachers v MU Foundation Coaching Staff, 11 v 11 match, held at Bower Fold at the end of each season.
Mr. Hughes, Teacher at Arlies Primary School up in Ridge Hill, assembles the squad each year on our behalf, to take on the ‘young’ coaching staff from Stretford, one year we might just get a win.
MU Foundation Chief Executive, John Shiels, has visited Bower Fold for a couple of National League North fixtures as a guest of our Trustee and Club Director, Paul Battye, to explore potentially working with the Foundation in delivering various projects across Tameside in the future.
