Trust thanked for youngsters’ sports scheme funding grant

Have your say

A sports scheme for Rotherham youngsters is making a difference to ‘some of the most socially segregated areas’ of South Yorkshire.

For Game On – The Midnight League, Rotherham United are working in partnership with Integrated Youth Services, to help youngsters who might have trouble accessing sporting clubs, delivering two training sessions per week from 6pm-8pm.

Coalfields Regeneration Trust supports Game On with a grant and works with the Football League Trust to oversee its delivery.

Spokesman Mark Cummins said: “Having mentors that they can look up to makes a big difference to these young people and we are so pleased that we can continue the sessions thanks to funding from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust.”
