To celebrate Christmas a unique U6 festival was held at the Vale Sports Arena, with hundreds of children enjoying the game and getting hooked on the sport.

The fun football provision was run by PG10 and supported by Everton FC. Since the provision opened football opportunities for children aged 5 and 6yrs old has risen so much it now sees over a hundred U5 U6 children playing football every week 3 times a week.

All the games are non-competitive played in a 4v4 format and under the FAW mini football rules. All children received a certificate of achievement and a player of the day was awarded.

A PG10 spokesman said “ The sole aim of the fun football is to raise participation levels, create junior teams and increase standards. We now have over 20 teams formed ready for September when the children can enter the Under 7 junior league in their respective area.

As well as the football opportunities coaches are also assisted with coaching sessions to aid player development throughout the week in their training sessions.

The U6 provision is open to any child and any junior club in the area. For more information please contact petegriff10@hotmail.co.uk
