Over 250 junior footballers and dancers join in at Community Trust holiday camps.

Wigan Athletic Community Trust’s October holiday camps proved popular once again, with over 250 junior footballers and dancers attending the Soccer Schools and Latics Dance Camps throughout the half term week.

45 dancers came down to the four days of Latics Dance Camps at Standish and Lowton High Schools, with 33 footballers playing at the Standish Soccer School on Friday alone!

Not only did junior players enjoy the holiday camps, Wigan Athletic’s Yanic Wildschut and Donald Love joined in at the Standish camp on Thursday, playing mini football matches with the youngsters.

Yanic said: “When you see young supporters at events like this, all in their Wigan kits and playing football, it’s a great feeling – it’s good to give something back to the kids, they seemed to enjoy it and I definitely did too.”
