Nearly 100 Oaklands College students with special educational needs took part in a football skills and sports day with community coaches from St Albans City Youth FC.
Students attending the Springfield and Pathway Courses took part in the event under the ‘Saints in the City’ Partnership with St Albans City FC.
The event was the brainchild of City Youth inclusive section co-ordinator, Tracy Light, who explained: “We are passionate about inclusive sport and giving all young people the opportunity to get involved and take part and we were all really happy to see how everyone enjoyed the sessions.
"Our inclusive football section at City Youth is continuing to grow and we hope that some of the students we met on the day will join our regular inclusive football sessions.”
The event was organised by St Albans City Youth FC football development manager Charlie Boswell in partnership with Kirsty Armstrong, tackling inactivity project lead at Oaklands College.
