Football for a Fiver

Once again the Football for a Fiver community program has proven to be both popular and successful, with an average of 90 children per day enjoy a fun filled week of coaching during February half-term.

The partnership between Guernsey FA and Guernsey FC Soccer School continues to provide a significant number of children with the opportunity to develop new and existing football skills in a positive and fun learning environment with the daily Football for a Fiver sessions being delivered by highly qualified and experienced coaches, including Tony Vance, Colin Fallaize, Angus Mackay and Joelle Pengelley.

Guernsey FA Chief Executive, Gary Roberts commented that

‘This program is instrumental in helping us to deliver community engagement opportunities that ensure football remains accessible for all of the community. To continue having such high participation numbers is testament to what is being delivered through this hugely popular program and the Guernsey FA and Guernsey FC Soccer School are delighted that this initiative remains such a great success from the perspective of achieving the program aim of providing opportunities for all of the community. The next course at Easter promises to provide more of the same and will again see children, with a wide range of football ability, having fun, learning new skills, being active and developing in a safe environment.’
