Kicking On! New Footy Teams in Weymouth


8:18am 8th May 2013

A brand new football club is kicking off at Redlands Sports Hub in Weymouth.

Redlands FC will be a new team aimed at increasing participation in the sport at all levels.

This new initiative is looking to recruit 8 teams of 10 for boys and girls between 6-11 years old.

The club will be based at the Sports centre on the state of the art 3G pitch.

Redlands FC will also be running a 'Football in the Community' programme which will encompass projects such as, schools coaching, including after school and lunchtime clubs, and soccer schools. The club also plans to deliver free taster sessions in schools during holidays.

Running the football side of the club will be Tim Davis, who said:

"Weymouth College and Redlands Community Sports Hub have been extremely supportive of both initiatives. I have already been approached by a good number of players and parents who want to be involved, which is fantastic news."

Sports Development Officer at Weymouth College, Ben Heath is equally excited about the project commenting: "The new club will provide an excellent opportunity for new young players to play competitive football at a level right for them. We are also hoping to get them involved in supporting college coaches, which will provide excellent learning opportunities for all."

Members of the community can also get involved by either helping with the running of the club or by signing up to a sponsorship package. So if you're an individual or a business, and are interested in finding out more, please contact either Ben Heath or Tim Davis.

For more information about joining the club you can contact Tim Davis on 07974885259 or email tim_wfc@live.co.uk.
