Council Street Soccer League kicks off in town

COLERAINE Borough Council is limbering up in anticipation of a new Street Soccer League with youths in Coleraine having the opportunity to play more fast action five-a-side over the summer.

Council runs the scheme in partnership with Coleraine Policing & Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) and Police Service Northern Ireland Community Police Team, aiming to encourage the borough’s teenagers to set up their own community football teams to compete in the six week event at Millburn Community Centre and will run every Thursday for six weeks all players must be aged between 14 and 18 years old.

Stephen McCartney, Community Sports Development Officer for Coleraine Borough Council said: “Street Soccer is a fantastic community football project aiming to develop young kids in the community through a shared love of the game. The Policing & Community Safety Partnership and the PSNI Community Police Team have been instrumental in this projects success, which we hope to build on this coming season.”
