Newtown FC are doing amazing work for our ‘We Wear the Same Shirt’ campaign



More and more people with mental health issues are turning to sport to help them manage their problems.

We spent the day at Newtown FC where the team are doing excellent work with people who suffer from a variety of conditions, as part of our ‘We Wear the Same Shirt’ campaign.

In the video, shot by Tiny Media, sufferers talk candidly about how football can motivate them when they feel down and make them feel much better after sessions.

Newtown, along with Merthyr Town, were among the first clubs to sign up to our programme.

Now Newport County and Wrexham have joined up too.
