Sheffield Wednesday helping city bring ‘wow factor’ to the community

Sheffield Wednesday have teamed up for the Sheffield City Trust to bring a football development programme to youngsters from the local community.

Monday, 13th September 2021, 3:06 pm

The programme launches on September 20th, and is designed for both boys and girls who are aged between 5-14 years old, and the aim is to ‘help develop the fundamental movements through a fun football environment’, as well as become a ‘great way to help improve children's social skills’.

It’s the latest venture from the Owls to do their bit for youngsters in the city as they seek to play their part in helping mould Sheffield’s future, and the SCT feel that teaming up with the Owls gives them an added boost.
