The JUSTNewcastle soccer school which took place at various venues over the summer holidays culminated in a free weeks coaching sponsored by NUST for the kids at St Wilfred’s Primary School in Gateshead. Over the course of the week kids were coached by NUST partners Newcastle Community Football in all aspects of the game in a week of fun and learning for all who took parts. Medals, certificates and prizes were handed out at the end of the week by ex United stalwart John Anderson  who gave up his time to present awards to an appreciable audience of excited kids and parents. Thanks once again must go from the Trust to both Newcastle Community Football who in partnership with JUSTNewcastle take football coaching into the community, and fellow sponsors Phoenix Taxis. John Anderson was representing Show Racism the Red Card.

This was the third JUSTNewcastle free Soccer School, with many more to follow being the intention. Last year JUSTNewcastle funded 30 children from Dunston Hill primary school and the previous year 30 from CanSt Wilfrids Aug 2015ning Street School in Benwell.

Unfortunately, not every child has the opportunity of getting quality coaching whilst at the same time having a whole lot of fun. The children from St Wilfreds though enjoyed both with funding via JUSTNewcastle, taking away the financial barrier that may have otherwise stopped these children enjoying what so many others take for granted.

Norman Watson chair of NUST commented  “we at NUST believe that JUSTNewcastle is an invaluable part of our organisation and our summer coaching schools present a great opportunity to take football coaching and our wider social responsibilities to the community. The final week of coaching for the kids at St Wilfred’s Primary School was a great week, thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part. Our thanks go to Newcastle Community Football, Phoenix Taxis, Show Racism the Red Card and John Anderson”.

NUST are always looking for additional financial support for our coaching in the community activities and if you feel able with additional sponsorship feel free to contact NUST at
