The Stonecot Project providing football coaching to young people initially funded by Sport England's Sportivate Programme has re-started working with two of Sutton United's key partners – the Metropolitan Police SNT Team and the youth club delivered at the Suttton Life Centre by Riverside Community Centre.
On Friday 9th January over 40 young people attended the session led by coaches Steve King and Paul Conde
The once a month sessions will if funding is provided be extended to once a week as they are so successful.
Rob Hardy Community Officer for Sutton United FC said – its very gratifying to see that the hard work of Sutton United's United in the Community Team is paying off and it is providing activities for young people in the Stonecot ward – and Im grateful to Steve King for his commitment and efforts to re-establish the session.
Further projects funded by Sportivate are due to start shortly again working with the Metrpolitan Police SNT teams in Sutton – these include a project in Belmont on the Shanklin Estate and another one based at the Club's Gander Green Lane HQ focusing on young people learning boxing skills
Other projects funded by the GLAs Freesport programme are also being developed working with other partners – the Surrey Twisters Cheerleading Group and Surrey County FA .
