Speaking of the events, Community Manager Gary Shaw said “With the school holidays now two weeks long, it was important that we put on a range of different activities for young people to enjoy.

“As always our daily activity [October Overload] remains the most popular as is held in high regard by parents/ guardians due to its range of activities and affordability.

“Stags Little Kickers proved really popular during the summer and we look forward to hosting this once more, whilst the girls day [Girls United] at the RH Academy is a fabulous opportunity to get more girls involved with the game, which we hope will see a knock on effect in terms of them being confident enough to attend match day clubs and enjoy the footballing experience more.”
