Children taking part in the FREE Stand Up Speak Up Saturday Morning Club, at Sincil Bank, got the chance to show off their football skills at half-time on Community Cup day. Almost 30 youngsters from the project were given free match tickets, courtesy of funding support from the University of Lincoln, and they took to the field in front of almost 2,000 Imps fans wearing specially commissioned Stand Up Speak Up t-shirts, courtesy of JUST Lincolnshire.
Stand Up Speak Up is a fantastic community-based initiative led by Lincoln City FC Sport & Education Trust, which aims to bring together a rich mixture of cultures and nationalities, breaking down language barriers through sport. The Trust provides workshops and leadership awards in primary schools, as well as offering a Saturday morning club for 5-11 year olds at Sincil Bank stadium, every week, FREE OF CHARGE.
The Saturday Morning Club provides young people, who may not have many opportunities to play sport in a safe and structured environment, the chance to join in free of charge, and to make new friends along the way. The club also aims to arrange a series of friendly football matches in the coming months.
If you’d like to join, find more information, or get involved as a volunteer, call Lincoln City FC Sport & Education Trust on 01522 563792, or simply come down to Sincil Bank, 10am - 12noon, every Saturday.
