STAVELEY are broadening their search for the next generation of footballers by setting up a range of activities in a new partnership with Premier Sport.

There will be a series of evening and weekend football and dance events for children aged four to eight and nine to 12.

Children aged seven and above that are identified as gifted and talented on the football programme will be referred to Staveley.

The initiative is designed to help the NCEL Premier Division side create a fast track for promising players into the club’s football development academy.

Staveley’s Neil Cluxton said: “We are delighted to create a partnership between Staveley and Premier Sport as Premier Sport already do a lot of work within the schools and in the local community.”

“Our link with Premier Sport will help us spot and develop local children in the area as well as raising the profile of Staveley FC.”

Physical Activity and Sport Coordinator for Premier Sport, Daniel Harris, said: “Premier Sport is dedicated to providing innovative sports coaching that helps children to live an active, healthy, fit life.”

All events will be held at Netherthorpe School, on Ralph Road, in Staveley.
