Nearly 3000 playing opportunities created through Vauxhall scheme

Nearly 3000 participation opportunities were created for children this summer via the Vauxhall Summer Soccer Camp programme. 44 camps were held throughout Wales by Fun Football accredited organisations, Welsh Premier League Clubs, Women’s Welsh Premier League Clubs and Silver and Gold Award Clubs. All deliverers have met the minimum standards audited by the Welsh Football Trust enabling players to take part in a safe, fun, learning environment.

27 Boys and Girls Camps were held (2325 players) along with 577 girls attending 17 girls-only camps. Deliverers were encouraged to provide girl-only camps to build on the success of the FAW hosting Wales’ first ever UEFA competition – the European Women’s U19 tournament. National Development Manager Jamie Clewer said “the camps provided a great opportunity for children to get involved in football at a reduced rate where previously price may have been a barrier. Players have now been signposted to local clubs or will hopefully continue to attend the turn up and play provision.”

Port Talbot Community Sports Limited took advantage of this opportunity and delivered camps throughout the summer. Community programme coordinator Lee John emphasised the great benefit the Vauxhall subsidised camps provide to a community club “It was great to see so many children learning and developing their football skills and having fun at the same time. It’s crucial that we encourage these young players and help them develop their talents. We are very grateful to Vauxhall for supporting us with our Fun Football Camps and we look forward to working with them in the near future.”

Vauxhall Managing Director, Duncan Aldred, said; “We are very excited about playing our part in the Fun Football Programme. From the beginning of our sponsorship we have been committed to supporting football from the grassroots through to the national senior team and it is vitally important for the future of the game in Wales that we support the young talent with such opportunities.”
