Children set to score free football coaching at JMO Sports Park

Youngsters will be able to enjoy free football sessions, which will be run by FA coaches, in Skelmersdale.

Local McDonald’s franchisee, Mark Blundell, is providing 120 hours of football coaching at JMO Sports Park.

Some of the sessions have already taken place, but there may still be spaces left on May 2 from 1-2pm.

In partnership with all four Football Associations across the UK, McDonald’s and its franchisees are providing hundreds of free football sessions, all delivered by a team of fully qualified coaches at over 600 locations across the UK during 2021.

All sessions follow the latest FA grassroots guidance and Government protocols.

Skelmersdale McDonald’s franchisee Mark Blundell said: “After a challenging year, it’s never been more important to get kids back playing sport and having fun with their friends.

“Football is the perfect way to do this. I am a big believer in grassroots football and support Formby Community Football Club by sponsoring FCFC Rangers.

“Our Fun Football programme is a real point of pride for the business and we’re so pleased we can do our part to help get kids active again.

“Fun Football is all about enjoying football in a fun, safe and pressure-free environment, and it’s been wonderful to see the joy on kids’ faces as they return to playing the sport they love.

“We’ll be putting on plenty more sessions throughout the spring and summer, ensuring all families in Skelmersdale can access the nation’s favourite game.”

The Skelmersdale Fun Football sessions are part of McDonald’s programme that aims to provide five million hours of free Fun Football coaching to children in the UK by 2022.
