EFL Week of Action showcases the life-changing work Stevenage Football Club & Foundation provides across our local community…
Monday 6th November marked the beginning of the Week of Action, with all 72 member clubs highlighting their impact on their respective communities.
First Team players visited Stevenage FC Foundation sessions across the community this week.
Jordan Roberts and Jamie Reid made the short trip to St Margaret Clitherow Primary School next to The Lamex Stadium to join in on the fun and games at the Stevenage FC Foundation-led After School Club.
St Margaret Clitherow Primary Headteacher Miss Puccio said, “We’re absolutely delighted to be working with Stevenage FC Foundation. Our children thoroughly enjoy taking part in the clubs, and the sessions have had a real impact on their sporting skills.
The children end the sessions with huge smiles on their faces due to the coaches' enthusiasm and dedication. Having players come and join the clubs and meet the children has given the children an experience they will never forget!”
Shephalbury Park Primary School welcomed the pair of Harvey White and Reece Hannam, while Taye Ashby-Hammond and Aaron Pressley visited Aston Primary School.
Elliott List and Krisztian Hegyi took to a Mini Ballers session in Symonds Green, which is designed for 2-4 year olds to introduce them to football.
Dan Sweeney and Harry Anderson teamed up for an Introduction to Exercise session at Bedwell Community Centre – a class aimed at people who need a bit of help getting back into movement.
Manager Steve Evans spoke of the Club’s responsibility to its town and commended the work of Stevenage FC Foundation.
“We have a real duty and discipline to be caring for everyone in the town. When I go into the supermarkets around the town, people from younger to older are very mindful of what we’re doing – so we need to be mindful of what they’re doing and care for them.
“My only words to Stevenage FC Foundation, to Joe Goude and his team, is keep up the great work. Without that great work, there would be a lot of unfortunate custodians of the town of Stevenage.
“The town of Stevenage is as much a part of the football club, as the football club is part of the town”
