Bangor City Football Club has teamed up with local social enterprise Vi-Ability to launch a brand new Football in the Community (FITC) programme.

The scheme kicks off with a free one-day soccer camp for boys and girls aged between 5 and 12 years old at Maesglas Leisure centre, Bangor on 29 October 2010.

This is followed by a launch event at Farrar Road the same evening, where table-topping City will be looking to extend their 100% start to the season against Bala Town (KO 19.30).

Welcoming the new initiative, City Chairman Dilwyn Jones said, "This is just the start of things to come".“It is high time we really built on our links with the local community, and I'm sure that Vi-ability can help us achieve this."

"We have tried similar projects in the past, but I believe now that we have the correct people in place to make this a huge success, for the people of Bangor, the surrounding region, and, of course, our football club".

Vi-Ability is one of the UK’s most promising social enterprises. They specialise in setting up football in the community schemes, and use the motivational power of football and the inspirational settings of football stadia to promote positive lifestyle messages.

Vi-Ability’s Founder and Managing Director, Kelly Davies, is a former Bangor City Girls player. She has represent Wales at all levels and played for Arsenal and Liverpool Ladies. Kelly, along with a team of specialists from within the football industry, will head the scheme.

Kelly said: “This is a very exciting venture with Bangor City and the area. For me to be able to put something back into the club that gave me a stepping stone into a career that served me so well is fantastic”.

"Here is an insight into some of the things we have planned in the forthcoming months: 
  • a free one day soccer camp for boys and girls aged between 5 and12 years old at Maesglas Leisure centre on 29 October 2010
  • the launch of the community scheme at the Bangor City v Bala game that evening - where all participants will be given free match tickets and much more…..
  • we then will re-start the After School clubs on Tuesday and Thursdays from 4pm-5pm; and continue ‘girls only’ sessions on a Wednesday.
  • our schools programme will then kick in, where, we aim to engage all local and surrounding schools in educative and social inclusion activities.
  • This should take us up to Christmas, which will see the launch of a new soccer camp called ‘Drop and Shop’. This gives parents the ‘unique’ opportunity to drop the kids off on the last Saturday before Christmas, whilst they go and do their last minute shopping."
For more information, and to book your child’s place on the free one day soccer camp, on Friday 29th October - contact Kelly Davies on 07725 576 997 or  email Kelly@vi-ability.org.
