COLFC in the Community’s ‘Social Footy’ sessions have resumed at our new community base, the Purple Hub @ KGV in Huyton.

Social Footy is our community arm’s regular kickabout, aimed at promoting positive mental health, wellbeing and friendships in a slower paced, laid back game.

Ian Brocklehurst is a regular participant at Social Footy who was keen to get back to sessions, “I was made up when I heard that Social Football was starting up again.”

“Not only because lockdown had made me more sedentary than usual, but I’d missed the good natured back and forth with the lads.”

“The WhatsApp group is good, but it doesn’t replace the face to face camaraderie we have.”

COLFC Community volunteer Michael Meadows added “It’s great to see so many of our regular participants back enjoying the sessions after the forced break due to COVID”

“It’s obviously been a difficult time for everyone across the city and country as a whole, with mental health being a particular concern, so we’re pleased to be able to resume this initiative promoting wellbeing within our community.”

“We now have the added bonus of being able to utilise the fantastic new club facilities at the Purple Hub.”

“The lads have all been blown away by the standard of this venue, so we’re looking forward to fully benefitting from this in the coming months.”

Sessions will now take place at 12pm on Sunday and 7pm on Wednesday evening and participants are encouraged to join the Whatsapp group where arrangements are made.

If anyone wishes to find out more or wants to enquire about joining in, please follow @COLFCCommunity on Twitter, send a message and one of our volunteers will get back to you.
