Fleetwood Town, alongside our Community Trust, are ready to name five new ambassadors to head up projects in the local area for the rest of the 2023/24 campaign.
The Trust are the club’s main link to the town and the surrounding areas, and they work off seven key themes that have been recognised by the English Football League Trust (EFL Trust): sport, education, health, inclusion, youth engagement, environment, and women’s football.
Chosen Ambassadors for the 23/24 season:
Brendan Wiredu – Sport and Youth Engagement Ambassador
Carl Johnston – Education and Girls/Women’s Football Ambassador
Ryan Broom – Health Ambassador
George Morrison – Inclusion Ambassador
Will Johnson – Environment Ambassador (and Champions Programme Ambassador)
The players chosen to head up these themes have been picked to be the face of, not only the club but also the Trust, with both sides working together to help maintain the strong bond Fleetwood has with the people within the town.
We caught up with Brendan Wiredu about being a role model for the community, and he had the following to say: “It’s important that the I and players take interest in the community with it being such a tight-knit one. The players are seen as role models who should encourage good behaviour, good morals, and principles among the youngsters - it’s close to my heart.”
Mike Tallentire, School Sport Educator and Player Engagement Officer for the Trust added: “We are delighted to have the five players on board for the new season. It is important for the players to work with the community when at this football club.
“The five chosen ambassadors will really help promote their areas through a variety of different ways, and alongside us, they will help children stay active, work hard in school and also help them become the best people they can be in whatever environment they are in.”
