Blackburn Rovers Community Trust has scored a winner with local schoolchildren after welcoming an overwhelming number of visitors to Ewood Park for its Half Term Soccer Camp.

Dozens of children attended the club's fun and friendly junior football courses, which were held from Monday to Friday this week for kids aged 5-11.

Rovers' highly-qualified community coaches delivered a fun football programme, keeping the action stimulating, with no two days the same.

The superb value-for-money offering, which provided the perfect week-long childcare solution for working families, took place at Blackburn Rovers Indoor Centre from 9am to 4.30pm each day. 

The young attendees were given a great coaching experience to develop their sporting and inter-personal skills and took home a Rovers certificate to reward their participation.

Gary Robinson, the Community Trust’s new Head of Sport, said: “We witnessed a significant increase in the number of children, both boys and girls, coming to the stadium during the school holidays.

“It’s been a real success, which is due to the club driving home the importance of community initiatives and wanting to be inclusive for every child to engage with the football club.

“We have had plenty of Rovers fans attend, but also supporters of other teams, so it’s nice to see that the positive messages coming out of the Community Trust are spreading far and wide. We hope to have further opportunities, not just for soccer camps but for multi-sports events, available in the near future.”
