Premier League Kicks

4 May 2018

Bristol Rovers Community Trust and Bristol City Community Trust were delighted to work together on a 'Premier League Kicks' event last weekend at South Bristol Sports Centre.

Premier League Kicks uses the power of football to connect with young people in some of the most high-need areas of the UK.

The youth outreach programme began ten years ago, with the aim to create safer, stronger and more respectful communities through the development of young people’s potential, whilst providing access to facilities, coaching and mentoring.

Bristol Rovers Community Trust Manager, Matt Bennett said "Premier League Kicks is a social inclusion project, where we offer free football sessions, as do Bristol City, and we've brought down a selection of our attendees, with many different backgrounds and stories with us to play a friendly match with Bristol City"

Geoff Stevens, Manager of the Bristol City Community Trust said "What's great about today is that we have City supporters playing for Rovers and Rovers supporters playing for City, so it's nice to have that balance and get the two groups together"
