Head coach John Sheridan took time out of his preparations for Tuesday’s game against Rochdale to speak to a local adult disability football group at Poolfoot Farm.
The group - who attend St. Nicholas Church every Monday - attend one of Fleetwood Town Community Trust’s extensive inclusion offers. The initiative has been made available to promote a healthy lifestyle in a fun, safe environment, which also promotes social interaction.
Matt Hilton, Director of Community and Education at Fleetwood Town's Community Trust, said: “We are committed to providing the best Inclusion programmes for all our communities within Fleetwood and the surrounding area, focusing on creating opportunities, encouraging innovation, promoting social inclusion and enhancing life skills particularly for those who may not have access to sport or any other positive activities for whatever reason.
“Our projects are based on the belief that engagement through sport can result in far more then developing sports skills, it can harness a sense of mutual respect and trust, widen horizons, raise aspirations and provide opportunities for local people regardless of race, sex, age or creed.”
