free football trining sessions for youths in London

Teenagers and young people on Battersea’s Surrey Lane estate can take part in organised football coaching sessions on their brand new £30,000 floodlit astroturf pitch.

Staff in the council’s early intervention team have arranged free coaching sessions on the new pitch every Thursday between 7.30pm and 9pm. The sessions are aimed at young people aged between 12 and 17.

The new all-weather playing surface is sited near to Macey House and has replaced the previous tarmac covered ball games area. The £30,000 upgrade was carried out so that young people have a better and safer surface to play on.

And with the introduction of floodlighting, the young people can use the new sport facility for extended periods after the school day has ended.

Wandsworth’s cabinet member for housing Cllr Paul Ellis said: “Young people on the estate are making really good use of this astroturf pitch and it’s offering them a great place to have fun with their friends, keep fit and let off steam after school.

“The new playing surface is a vast improvement on the previous tarmac covered pitch and the floodlights mean it can be used much more widely all year round.”
