Community football

Another fantastic forage into our local area today! We went up to the Sheffield United academy to find out what goes on there and how it impacts on the community. We saw the different pitches used by the various teams, how young footballers make their way through the academy and what they offer to members of the public. Rob, who showed us around, commented on how keen and engaged the children were.
As well as looking at the football pitches, we got a sneaky peak at the snooker players in action upstairs! Who knew there was also a snooker academy on sight?! 

My favourite quote of the day, when asking about why we visited was from Cahner, who said, “because Sheffield is home to the oldest football club in the world, we should learn about what it’s led to. It’s part of our history.” How true!
