COMMUNITY TRUST THANK PROJECT PARTNERS FOR THEIR SUPPORT OF THE EVERY PLAYER COUNTS PROJECT

14 July 2017

Wigan Athletic Community Trust would like to thank all of their project partners for their support of the Every Player Counts project during the past academic year.

  • Community Trust deliver multi-sports sessions at eight different schools and colleges.
  • Every Player Counts helps people with learning disabilities to play football and sport.
  • Will Grigg and Michael Jacobs helped to launch the project in October 2016.

The Community Trust have delivered multi-sports sessions to over 300 young people at Carmel College, Dean Trust Wigan, Hawkley Hall High School, Hope School, Landgate School, Oakfield High School, St John Rigby College and West Lancashire High School since the launch of the Every Player Counts project in October 2016.

Every Player Counts is a programme funded by the Wembley National Stadium Trust and administered by the EFL Trust, and through the scheme Community Trust coaches visit schools in Wigan on a weekly basis to provide free football and sports coaching.

A £54,000 grant from the Wembley National Stadium Trust means the Every Players Counts project will help hundreds of young people with learning disabilities to play football and sport over the next three years.
