Cheltenham Town and the Community Trust this afternoon joined the 72 Football League clubs across the country on the EFL’s Day of Action to highlight some of societies biggest issues.
Across the nation, clubs in the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two have been engaging with their communities by hosting and organising events for 2019’s EFL Day of Action.
The day is designed to showcase the hard work in tackling a wide range of important social issues, including mental health and community cohesion.
This morning, members of the Community Trust’s Futsal team were invited down to the Energy Check Training Ground to watch the first team train before meeting manager Michael Duff.
Community Trust manager Olly Roberts said: “It was brilliant for our Futsal scholars to be able to attend the training ground today to watch the first team train and to meet Michael.
“It was a great way to celebrate EFL’s Day of Action and the students certainly enjoyed their time at the training ground. Thank you to Michael and the team for inviting us down for the morning.”
