Everton’s Under-18s got behind this year’s Level Playing Fields’ weeks of action by welcoming a local community group to USM Finch Farm for a fun-filled training session.
The aspiring footballers met with a local ‘Community Action Social Club’ which acts as a care provider for disabled adults in Mossley Hill and works alongside Everton in the Community to encourage a social and healthy lifestyle, through the power of football.
The interactive kick-a-bout, which was arranged after the team took part in disability awareness training session, saw the Academy scholars put into practice what they had learned in the classroom and forged strong relationships between the groups.
Michelle Kirk, Equality and Disability People Partner, said: “Everton is proud to encourage equality and diversity right across the Club and we were proud to see how well our young footballers interacted with the group – they felt really welcome!
“Level Playing Fields is an important group to support and we’re delighted to celebrate the weeks of action with them, however initiatives like this take place across the Club on a regular basis. We hope that the group found it as enjoyable as we did!”
