Free football session proves to be a success

The South Leeds Allstars free football session for the local community turned out to be a huge success on Saturday (24 June 2023).

Over 30 players came to the session including 20 budding young football players who don’t currently play for a team. We are delighted with how the session went and we are already in discussions on a date for the next session.

Young footballers ranging from the age of 11-15 came along and had a fantastic tournament whilst throughly enjoyed themselves for the hour and half they was all together.

Please keep a eye on our Facebook page for details of the next session and if any local clubs are looking for players at the following age groups U12, U13 & U15 (season 2023-24) then please message us as we have numerous players within our community group currently looking for a club which can help them gain more skills and enjoy football more frequently.
