Watch a round up of Wigan Athletic Community Trust's Football 4 Forces programme.

  • Football programme for ex-servicemen, those still serving, reserves and cadets
  • Provided thanks to funding from Ministry of Defence
  • Programme part of Wigan Athletic's support for Armed Forces Covenant

Wigan Athletic Community Trust's Football 4 Forces programme provides weekly football activities for members of the armed forces community, aiming to improve their health and wellbeing and to help them feel less socially isolated.

Earlier this year, funding from the Ministry of Defence's Covenant Fund enabled the programme to be extended and introduced to new areas in Wigan.

Latics boss Gary Caldwell showed his support for the programme in March, providing an evening's coaching session at Robin Park for the Football 4 Forces players.
