It’s a fantastic opportunity to help the Club drive forward its activities in the community.

The activities the Club is putting in place to engage with the local community and encourage youngsters to develop their skills is something we can really relate to. Hopefully by helping the club’s community programme go from strength to strength we’ll encourage children to lead a healthy lifestyle, and you never know we may help them discover the next Wayne Rooney!”
