Spartans Community Football Academy works closely with other community partners to make sure that together we are responding to the needs of the local community.
“I've been in Community Learning and Development in North Edinburgh for many years and I got involved with The Spartans Community Football Academy from the very beginning when Douglas and Craig were first developing their plans. We’ve worked together to deliver a range of community initiatives including Hopscotch holidays, community sports events and additional support services for schools.
"The Academy runs great programmes both in school and after school such as Homework Clubs and Street Football in a Safe Playground. In fact, The Academy is the largest provider of after school activities for primary school pupils in North Edinburgh. They really do provide substantial benefits to the local community.”
"Allan’s knowledge and experience of the local area is second-to-none. He has done so much to support young people in North Edinburgh and his input has really helped to inform our programmes and initiatives at The Academy. We are really grateful and privileged to work with community partners like Allan.”
