Shining a light on some of our work in the local community

15 October 2021

Saturday's game against Mansfield Town is the club's annual Community Day, where we shine a light on some of the club's work in the local community. We are looking forward to welcoming some of the below groups to the game.

We welcome our Premier League Kicks groups from - Queensway, Hemmingwell, Wellingborough. The Premier League Kicks programme offers free weekly football sessions with NTFC Community Trust Coaches aiming to provide activity for young people aged 8-18 to improve personal skills as well as football skills. Working in partnership with Northants Police and Premier League Charitable Fund as well as local partners. Check the PL Kicks page online.

Welcome also to the Northants emergency services cadet leaders, who are bucket collecting and talking to the public about the work the cadets do. Programmes Manager Anna Letts has trained the Northampton Cadets as Crime ambassadors through PL Kicks. They will be delivering crime awareness workshops in primary schools alongside Northamptonshire Police. For more information, please visit nescadets.co.uk
