Premier League Kicks

Premier League Kicks uses the power of football to connect with young people in some of the most high-need areas of the UK.

The youth outreach programme began ten years ago, with the aim to create safer, stronger and more respectful communities through the development of young people’s potential, whilst providing access to facilities, coaching and mentoring.

In its first decade, Premier League Kicks has engaged 205,650 young people in weekly football coaching sessions held at local community venues across the UK. The programme is now run in 776 venues.

This season, to celebrate ten years of Premier League Kicks, we asked clubs to nominate their ‘Kicks Hero’; someone who has inspired others through their dedication, work ethic, and own personal development. Each Kicks Hero’s story was chronicled in the form of a bespoke comic strip, illustrated by Marvel and DC Comics artist John McCrea.

Fleetwood Town Community Trust began running the Premier League Kicks programme in September 2016 and the project has grown from strength to strength. The project focusses on young people aged from 11-18 years old, “focusing on the aim to create safer, stronger and more respectful communities through the development of young people’s potential, whilst providing access to facilities, coaching and mentoring.”

Fleetwood Town have engaged with over 400 young people in 2017 across Fleetwood, Thornton Cleveleys, Wyre, and Garstang. We are also part of the Premier League Kicks North West Division 2 and play competitive fixtures along with friendlies each month against other local opposition.
