Last Thursday saw the Stalybridge Celtic Foundation work in partnership with the National Citizens Service via The Challenge Manchester, to deliver an ‘Open Day’ for Celtic Juniors players from U7’s to U11’s.
Prior to the event, we hosted two sessions at Bower Fold, to meet 10-12 Young People who are part of the government backed NCS programme, working with The Challenge. These meetings were to find out about each others organisations and plan the logisitics for the day.
The third visit was to deliver the Open Day, free of charge, to up to sixty Celtic Junior players. Those who attended took part in a ‘Skills Challenge’ which included a Penalty Shoot Out, Dribbling, 1 v 1 matches, shooting amongst others, followed by a football tournament.
Each participant received a Certificate and a FREE £5 Fresh Air Football match ticket, for a 2018/19 Evostick League Home fixture at Bower Fold.
Our thanks go to the NCS volunteers who did a fantastic job in arranging the day, also to Garry, Mike and Sarah from the Juniors for helping out and also Pete Dennerley, who facilitated the initial meeting with the NCS, a good job all round folks!
