Over a 100 young people took part in the first day of football coaching being organised by Wigan Athletic Community Trust this summer.

40 young people enrolled at Pay as You Play sessions at Shevington High School and Byrchall High School while 60 children are taking part in a week of free football coaching at Westfield Primary School being funded by Wigan and Leigh Housing.

Coaches from the Latics in the Community progarmme are also helping to run a disability Soccer School this week at New Greenhall School in Atherton.

And the Club's football coaching isn't just limited to Wigan this week, with three coaches from the Trust visiting the Isle of Man to help coach 80 young people from Colby FC Juniors on the island.

Tom Flower, Head of Community said: "Our holiday activities are off to a great start. We've tried to cater for as many young people as possible this summer with the majority of coaching sessions costing just £5.

"And later in the summer we will also be running our Latics Soccer Schools where participants will get the chance to win some great prizes including the chance to meet the manager Roberto Martinez."
