The Community Trust have delivered soccer schools on the island for the past five years.

  • The soccer schools took place at Colby Football Club.
  • Children practiced, developed and improved their football skills and techniques.
  • Coaches from the Community Trust will be returning to the Isle of Man next year.

Over 100 children from across the Isle of Man had a week to remember at the Community Trust’s summer soccer schools.

Coaches delivered sessions at the home of Colby Football Club for the fifth consecutive year, and provided boys and girls with hours of fun to practice, develop and improve their skills and techniques.

Wes Partington, Sport and Cohesion Manager at Wigan Athletic Community Trust, said: “This summer’s visit to the Isle of Man was another huge success, with so many local children on the island taking part in football activities with our coaches.

“There are more and more children at our sessions each year, which is just fantastic, and we can’t wait to return next year.”

A parent of a participant, said: “The atmosphere was great and the children looked like they were really enjoying themselves, but what was lovely to see was that the coaches seemed to be having a great time too and were loving what they were doing.

“I’d like to thank the coaches from Wigan Athletic for keeping the children safe and for educating and encouraging good friendships while also embracing football.”

The Community Trust will be running soccer schools in the Isle of Man next year between 10th-13th April and 30th July – 3rd August. For more information or to book a place please call 01942 318090 or email
