Community Trust present Wigan Youth Zone football team with new kit

At last night’s game against Nottingham Forest, Head of Community Tom Flower presented Wigan Youth Zone’s new under 11’s football team with their kit for the 2014/15 season.

As part of their partnership with Wigan Youth Zone, Wigan Athletic Community Trust have sponsored the kit which the team will wear this year in the Wigan and District Youth Football League.

The team played in their second ever competitive game last week, winning 3-2 against Hindley Town FC, with goals coming from Connor Mullen to secure their first victory.

Tom said: ‘It’s brilliant to have an ongoing working partnership with Wigan Youth Zone, who provide a great space for our coaches to lead numerous sessions for the Youth Zone members and the wider Wigan community.’

‘I’d like to wish the new team good luck for the rest of the season on behalf of the Community Trust.’

In addition to providing the kits, the Community Trust provide weekly coaching sessions at Wigan Youth Zone for boys and girls and for young people with disabilities, with support from the Premier League and the PFA.
