Another innovate programme is launched by our partners at Lidl
Wales players have been getting into the Wimbledon spirit with a game of football tennis coached by ‘Directors of Football’ from the Lidl Play More Football scheme.
Star players Aaron Ramsey, Wayne Hennessey, Joe Ledley, Ben Davies and Tom Lawrence all took up the challenge for a game of football tennis, supported by children who are coaches in the Lidl Play More Football programme.
Lidl Play More Football is an innovative programme, created by Lidl, The Football Association of Wales and Welsh Football Trust to maximise participation of children in football across Wales and training 1,000 young people to become ‘Directors of Football.’ These young people are taught the skills to plan, organise and deliver their own activities to both primary and secondary school children.
And with around 13,000 children in Wales already benefiting in the peer-to-peer approach the professionals were keen to see what all the fuss is about.
