Youth Development

Looking to the future in these difficult times, this has been a highly successful year for our Youth Development project. Most recently, just in time on 4 March, we were able to run another tournament in conjunction with Ipswich Town Academy.


Over the last year, projects included an opportunity for 60 children from local primary schools to visit Ipswich Clip n’ Climb, football tournaments hosted by ITFC, a Kids Kitchen in association with the Yeo Group and Felixstowe Academy, along with supporting three talented young people in meeting their sporting expenses and sponsoring four students at West End Week.

Thanks to all who have supported these events.
