COMMUNITY: First Soccer School of new partnership a success

Wates Construction and CUFC CST kick things off in Kells

2 November 2017

The ground breaking new community-focused partnership between Carlisle United’s Community Sports Trust and Wates Construction took another step forward during the half-term school holidays as the two organisations came together to host a Soccer School at St Mary’s School in Kells.

The school was held over three days and 47 children attended, taking part in fun games and competitions, with football and enjoyment very much at the heart of the event.

United’s CST manager John Halpin said: “I think the fact that we’ve held such a successful soccer school just days after announcing the partnership with Wates is very exciting for everyone involved.

“It shows that we’re all determined to make a positive impact, and the youngsters who came to the camp certainly went away having had a really good time. It’s fantastic for us as a community provider to have a company like Wates, who are clearly keen to be involved in community projects in the area, to be helping us to increase our presence in West Cumbria.

“This is an extremely good start to the partnership and we’re looking forward to taking it even further as we go on from here.”
