Street football in a Safe Place was the first social impact programme at the Spartans Community Football Academy. Young people can play football for free at The Academy after school and during holidays. Sessions are supervised by our youth work team.
"I came to Spartans because Kenny (youth worker) said that I could come down. The first time I came I was by myself. I was nervous but I've got lots of friends now at Spartans. I play in the Connections team - we were second in the league this year and I scored 17 goals. Spartans FC is my favourite team. I go to all the matches if I can - it gets me out the house. They won the league this year - it made me really happy. My favourite player is Blair Atkinson, he's really fast. This year I'm helping at Breakfast Club with the kids."
