Free transport will be available for young footballers in Fairfield in a bid to encourage more people to get involved in an innovative training scheme.

Taking place every Friday until March 28, there will be a free minibus available from the Sure Start Children’s Centre on Victoria Park Road, Fairfield, to the Goalz training project.

Led by coaches from Stockport County FC Community Foundation, the free programme is open to youngsters aged between ten and 17 and runs weekly at Buxton Community School between 6pm and 9pm.

Transport will be available for seven people and will be run on a first come, first served basis with pick-up from the children’s centre at 5.45pm and drop-off at 9pm.

• Buxton FC and Chris Hill Community Sports continue to hold their weekly training sessions on Saturday mornings for youngsters.

The sessions (£3.50) at Harpur Hill College Sports Hall cater for children aged between three and 12.

Three to five-year-olds sessions are 10-11am, whilst six to 12-year-olds are 11am-12pm.
