SINCE the September launch of our new project to help young people ‘Up their game’, over 60 enthusiastic footballers have joined our Street Soccer sessions in the St Budeaux area of Plymouth at the Colebrook SW Ltd run William Sutton Memorial Hall.

Our experienced coaching team at Argyle Community Trust have already progressed two our participants to successfully attain a FA Level 1 Coaching Badge after they impressed during several hours of voluntary work.

These youngsters are now working as coaches for Argyle Community Trust following the award of their emergency first aid and child protection certificates. One shining example is Matt Anderson, who has contributed over 60 hours of voluntary work with the Trust, giving back to the community he represents.

Jeff Dawson, Youth Worker for Tamar View, said: “Matt has developed tremendously over the past two years and his passion to help young people is both inspiring and commendable. He has been a key member of the Community Ambassador team and has been creative in tackling issues facing young people in Barne Barton as part of this group. He should serve as an inspiration for other young people in Plymouth as he proves that with hard work and dedication good things can happen and goals can be achieved. It has been a pleasure working with him.”

The project is fully funded by Affinity Sutton Housing and we are still actively recruiting players for the scheme that runs until July 2016.

‘Upping Your Game’ involves our highly-qualified team of coaches offering exciting sessions for all young people aged 7-25. Sessions will include practical skill sessions, matches and the chance to represent Plymouth Argyle in city-wide tournaments.

Aside from the practical football opportunities, participants will also get the opportunity to gain sport-specific qualifications. Each session will create chances to volunteer for Plymouth Argyle, as well as enrol on coaching and multi-sport accreditations. 

It is hoped that through this unique mix of practical football and education opportunities, Argyle Community Trust will help to build healthier, more employable communities.
