SAFC legend supports our local kids

7 February 2017

Over 100 primary school pupils from the Sunderland area had the chance show off their footballing skills to Sunderland AFC legend Gary Bennett as part of Tesco Bank Junior Players.

Bennett, who notched up over 400 appearances for Sunderland throughout his career, attended a Premier League Schools football tournament at Silksworth Sports Complex led by Foundation of Light.

Tesco Bank Junior Players is a flagship community coaching programme jointly led by the Foundation of Light, Newcastle United Foundation and the Newcastle Eagles Community Foundation and gives school children in the region the opportunity to take part in physical activity and receive expert tuition from highly qualified coaches. This unique programme is first time three Foundations have collaborated on such a project.

It was great to come along to today’s tournament and see so many children out enjoying playing football.

Getting children active and involved in sport from a young age is extremely important and I am in no doubt that the Tesco Bank Junior Players programme will have a positive effect on the young participants in the North East.

Gary Bennett, former Sunderland AFC captain

Adele Mills, Tesco Bank Senior Community Investment Manager, added: “The children taking part in today’s tournament were really excited to play in front of a footballing hero so I am delighted we were able to provide them with this experience.

“Our focus is to create opportunities for young people and encourage healthy choices and, delivered by the Foundation of Light, this programme provides this in a fun way.”
