Connections Youth Club
Connections Youth Club welcomes pupils from Edinburgh's special schools to come up to The Academy to meet new friends, socialise, relax - and play some football.
"I like the fresh air and getting a kick-about. I don't like being inside. My favourite is playing pool and sometimes I play on the X-Box. Kenny cooks Pizza for us. I go to Pilrig School and my friends come too but I have new friends too."
"Jamie was one of the first pupils to come to the Connections Youth Club. We are delivering football coaching to a number of special schools and the Connections Youth Club is a way to get pupils from different schools together, meet new friends and provide a pathway into our Connections football teams at The Academy."
