Worksop Town’s Football in the Community programme crowned its first penalty shootout champion this week at St Luke’s Church of England Primary.
The sponsored event raised over £300 for the school, as young football star Aeryn came out victorious.
Eight local schools are working alongside the Worskop Town scheme, which delivers dinner time clubs and after school clubs.
Jake Scott, captain of the club’s first team and one of the Football in the Community coaches, said the scheme is building momentum.
“We’ve started to work with schools doing sponsored penalty shootouts,” he said.
“The winners from schools have a chance to win a variety of things, from being welcomed onto our first team pitch at home games, to getting to come down to one of our camps for a day free of charge.”
“We feel we are heading in the right direction and we still have plenty of projects yet to put into action.”
One of the next initiatives will be one-to-one football coaching sessions, in conjunction with the club’s junior section.
And over Easter Tigers are hosting a Football Camp at the Glassworks on Sandy Lane, on 8th, 9th, 14th and 15th April.
