By providing free football in a safe environment 3 hours a week the players will have something to look forward to, a social experience they would not have otherwise. The group has expanded week on week and we can see the smiles and laughter this opportunity already gives them, not to mention the positive effects sport plays on their mental health, confidence, ability and physical health. We hope to put posters up in the job centre, Cornhill, the university’s and college, and many other specific places to attract more players. We can only see this project getting so much bigger.
