Last week The Manchester United Foundation, in partnership with The Oldham Academy North, delivered another successful holiday club at the academy. 38 local children ranging from age 7-11 attended the club over the 3 days.
The weather was fantastic so we were able to spend every day on the 3G pitch and play lots of football. The last day was made up of 3 competitions (Penalty shoot-out, Target Zone, and a 6-a-side world cup tournament.) The overall winners were presented with medals and prizes and all participants received a certificate and a United badge for taking part. Parents were invited in to the sports hall to see the presentation.
“I would like to thank Sahil Saeed from Year 8 for all his help and support during the 3 days. This is the second holiday club he’s helped me with now, giving up his own time to come back in school and develop himself. I’ve seen his confidence grow so much during this time, and his coaching and supporting of the younger participants is fantastic.” Tony Ensor, Hub Development Officer.
Congratulations to the competition winners:
