Football Project Success for Students at Truro College
Over 30 Construction and Automotive students from Truro and Penwith College have been participating in drop-in lunchtime football sessions on the tennis courts at the Truro College campus.
The students who are participating in the football sessions have not accessed sport since leaving school, and the new opportunities to participate in regular physical activity has been extremely well received.
The project forms part of the Truro and Penwith College 'Health, Well-being and Sport' programme which is being developed and delivered by the College Sports Maker, Julian Wills.
Julian said "The students have been fantastic. They are so enthusiastic and have thoroughly enjoyed being able to play football in their lunch break. We will definitely look to expand this programme to engage with more students at both our Truro and Penwith campus"
The initiative that will see the creation of Team 19 leagues for those who want to play intra-mural games, has the full support of the Cornwall FA County Development Manager, Andy Mitchell, and will be delivered in close partnership working with the Cornwall Sports Partnership.
