Community Scheme of the Year 2014!!
9th June 2014
On Saturday 7th June at the Celtic Manor Golf Resort The Football Conference Trust announce Alfreton Town winners of the coveted award 'Community Scheme of Year 2014'!! This has earned Alfreton Town FC Community Development Scheme which is run by Academy-Links not only the prestigious title but also an added bonus of further community funding. This is great news for the local schools who benefit greatly from the work Aacademy-Links deliver on behalf of the Alfreton Town FC Community Development Scheme.
In January 2014 Alfreton Town FC teamed up with Academy-Links to run the community development scheme and deliver a professional brand of coaching to the community and schools across the Alfreton area not normally accessible.
Considering our involvement started only a few months ago it is an amazing achievement by our coaching team! We successfully deliver week in week out the level of coaching sessions that we want associated with Academy-Links and the football club. We are very proud of the work both Academy-links and Alfreton Town are doing with the local community and we very much look forward to building and furthering our relationship that will benefit the people and the community of Alfreton.
A big Thank you goes to all the schools where we provide coaching. It really is the children who are the stars!!
