Football project praised by MP
Whitlawburn Community Resource Centre are currently midway through a two year football programme aimed at bringing together local youths in the community.
Local MP Tom Greatrex recently paid a visit to the Whit Football project to see for himself the work that is being carried out by the Centre and Utd sports, who supply the coaches.
The programme is funded by People’s Health Trust as part of their Active Communities Funding Programme.
Tom said: “It was great to visit the Whit Football project recently, where it was clear to see that the hard work being put in by the centre and the coaches is paying off for the people who involved.
“The project has provided a great, unique opportunity for local young people who are interested in playing football and it’s no wonder why it has proved to be so popular.
“I’d like to thank the coaches and players for their welcome, and I’d encourage anyone else who’d like to get involved, but hasn’t yet, to do so.”
Centre manager Stuart Borland said: “The funding from People’s Health Trust funding is most welcome.
“Our football programme continues to maintain a competitive league while retaining steady numbers throughout.”
The project runs on a Friday and Sunday evening and has proved so far very popular with local youths.
