Community: Robins celebrate EFL Day of Action

20 March 2018

The Cheltenham Town Futsal Scholars were special guests at the Energy Check Training Ground as the Robins celebrated EFL’s Day of Action on Tuesday.

All 72 EFL clubs came together on the same day for the Day of Action to demonstrate the positive impact football can have in changing young people’s lives.

From Plymouth to Peterborough and Sunderland to Southend, clubs across all three divisions have showcased the innovative and ground breaking work they do for young people in tackling some of the biggest issues in society across education, health, community inclusion and participation.

And at Cheltenham Town the club gave BTEC students on the Cheltenham Town Community Trust (CTCT) course access to the club’s training base, where they met and chatted with manager Gary Johnson and watched a reserve team game.

Olly Roberts, from Cheltenham Town Community Trust, said: “It was great to be able to take the students up to the training base to meet the manager and see what goes on during the week ahead of a league game.

“Gary Johnson, his coaching staff and all the players are always very supportive of our projects throughout the season and this was another great example of the club opening its doors to help inspire youngsters and show the impact that football can have on young lives.”

EFL Chairman, Ian Lenagan said: “Football continues to support its communities seven days a week, 365 days a year through our unique network of Club community trusts.

“Bringing all 72 together on one day for the EFL Day of Action highlights the special role the EFL has in society and our collective ability to make a positive and lasting impact to the lives of millions of people.

“It is fantastic to see so many managers and players across England and Wales coming out in support of the excellent work being undertaken by their own Club right in the heart of their own community.

“There are few sporting organisations that can deliver the scale of innovative and ground breaking activity we do via our network of Clubs across so many important areas, including inclusion, charitable causes, community engagement, education or health.”
