Forge North Football
Forge North Football is our project in the North of the City.
The SCYL at Goodwin Sports Centre has been a real success and we wanted to bring a new project to the North of the city. It's a 5-a-side football session that is free to all young people ages 11-18.
We started our project in 2016 and we are back and bigger for 2018/19 with Forge-ing Futures thanks to Big Lottery Funding.
You can find us on Mondays from 6pm down at the 5-a-side pitches on Concord Sports Centre in term time. You can get in touch or just come down on the day.
Longer term we want to get a regular league running so the more of you we get involved the better it will be.
How does it work?
At the moment we organise games and sessions for the young people that attend on a Monday evening. Whoever comes along we get some matches going between the young people.
In the long term we want to create a free 5-a-side league where a team plays a competitive game each week against another team. We don't want anything to you from enjoying your football so the league is free to young people and each team will have a leader with them to make sure it's the best environment possible to play in.
Teams can be put together by young people, leaders or youth groups.
We would want to make it as easy as possible for you to be part of an organised league. You wouldn't have to organise matches, book pitches or sort out referees. We'll put the fixtures on the website, you just get your team down each week at the right time.
We want football to be played with a positive attitude; where people give their best and are positive towards teammates, opposition and officials. We want to encourage and build up team and young people to be leaders and give opportunities for them to step up in sports leadership.
