WFC Trust receive grant that will enable them to run ‘Soccer in Schools’ programme until end of summer term

The Wealdstone FC Community Trust has received a grant for a further £10,700 to help fund their ‘Soccer in Schools’ programme through to the end of the summer term.

The WFC Trust also received a final award of £769 for last term’s work from the National League Trust.

Nick Symmons and his community team will be supported by Gordon Bartlett and members of the playing squad in this activity for the coming programme.

The WFC Trust recently received a glowing review from Roxeth School in Harrow for their work with the programme.

“The children were enthralled by the PE/maths programme offered by Wealdstone Football Club,” read the review.

“The maths lessons linked well to the new National Curriculum offering a good range of differentiation for all abilities and enabled the children to become engaged with the fun side of maths.

“The fact that the coaches were first-team players with real life experiences and stories of the football world worked wonders to spark the children’s interest and keep them motivated throughout the unit, especially those usually less-engaged in PE.”
