First seven days has been a huge successCentre facilities manager for Fuse Football, Mick Horsfall, has been delighted with the first week’s turnout at the Club’s new training ground.
Appointed in January, Horsfall brings with him a wealth of experience after setting-up a successful five a side company in Blackpool as well as work in Lancashire and beyond.
Horsfall now hopes to see more faces through the door at the facility at Poolfoot Farm, and belives Fuse Football will go from strength to strength.
He said: “Week one has gone fantastically. We’ve had a full range of users in from Under 6’s to Under 18’s, and with Fleetwood Town looking to spirit of youth we’ve gone quite south in our approach to try and get as many people through the door as we can.
“We’ve done walking football, masters’ football, seven a sides and business have been in playing each other, so we’ve pretty much had every spectrum of the community in.
“Success isn’t overnight. The more we put in to what we’re doing now means we will hopefully reap the rewards later on.
“The feedback drives you on as well because everyone has been so positive with not only what we’ve got at the minute, but the vision of the whole project. It gives you that strength to keep running.
“When you explain to people what the chairman is trying to achieve and what he will achieve, people are envious of it and want to be a part of it.
“The kids have been ace and are always smiling. I’m just happy to be there for them so they can see what’s available.
“The facilities are literally going to be available to everyone. You want to get four, five, six year olds involved because they’re the future of the Club.
“This week we’ve got a few schools coming in and using the facilities. Cardinal Allen are coming in this week and we’ve also got Wyre Sports looking at tag rugby tournaments.
“We’re trying to make it a community facility and not all about the football. It’s about building the brand and the first session is free for everyone.”
