Over the Easter holidays, Consett AFC has been the venue of an exciting project with the Newcastle United Foundation offering Consett AFC NUFC Foundation Traininggreat training opportunities for kids in the local area to play sport, have fun and improve their skills. Over 102 kids from as far away as Spennymoor have been at the Belle Vue Stadium giving it their best shot. The future of sport in the UK is something which needs to be developed and events such as this demonstrate the effort which is put in to help kids improve and enjoy their sport.

During the event, the Newcastle United Foundation brought out their inflatable goal with laser technology to measure the speed of shots and give the kids a footballing activity which helped them improve their skills whilst having a good time in the process. Over the 4 days, the kids were enjoying the coaching from the dedicated NUFC Foundation staff who did their best to deliver top quality training whilst bringing a smile to the kid’s faces.

This is only the beginning of courses available for the kids at Consett AFC with more events planned for the 27th, 28th, 29th and the 30th of May and the 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th of August. A special girls football day will also be held on the 8th of June.

If you have kids who love nothing more than getting out on the pitch then maybe this could be for them. You can find out more about these courses by getting in touch with Consett AFC and speaking with Frank Bell on 07710133694.
