Lincolnshire FA are working alongside the Crofts Estate Agents Youth Football League and have successfully secured FA funding to provide all-new football for fun sessions in North East Lincolnshire!
Having started on Monday 6 February 2023, these games consist of turn-up-and-play sessions. They are taking place from 5pm to 6pm at the ever-popular Bradley Development Centre. The sessions are designed primarily for those aged 13 or 14.
Each session, which is overseen by an FA-qualified & DBS-compliant coach, focuses primarily on fun & enjoyment. This makes for the perfect opportunity for those not currently involved with football to enjoy the beautiful game!
In addition, the first four weeks are absolutely FREE and are open to all 13- and 14-year-olds regardless of their ability!
The funding is available due to a marked decrease in levels of participation in male-affiliated football between ages 11 and 16 across the country. A range of interventions were developed and tested by the FA between February and June 2022, with Small-Sided Recreational Football leading the way in terms of those who are inspired to keep playing as a result of participating. Lincolnshire FA is delighted to work with The Crofts Estate Agent Youth Football League to bring this innovative and exciting offer to the County.
