Community Scheme team up with Ditton Minors

Millwall Community Scheme has teamed up with Kent based side Ditton Minors to develop soccer schools and football activity within the Ditton and Aylesford areas. 
For the past three school holidays Millwall Community Scheme coaches have been delivering Soccer Schools to a total of 300 young people between the ages of 3-15 years. The children received technical sessions, small-sided games and fun football based activities delivered by FA Licensed Millwall coaches. 
During the February half term Ditton Minor's U15s team benefited from tailored coaching session designed by Ditton coaching staff and Millwall Community Scheme coaches, Jake Goodman also visited the soccer school to pass on his knowledge and experience to the U15s session. 
During the season Ditton U10s have also visited Millwall FC v Hull City to experience their first taste of live football. Ditton U10s manager Scott de Garis commented: "The kids were guard of honour when the teams took the pitch and got a chance to meet some of the players and Zampa at half time. Everybody had a great day."
The relationship between Ditton Minors and Millwall Community Scheme is continuing to grow with Soccer Schools running in every school holiday and Saturday football sessions starting on Saturday 11th May supported by Millwall Community Scheme coaches. 
Community Relations Officer Jason Henley added: "We understand a large part of our supporter based live within the Kent area and would find it difficult to bring their children to activities we already run within Lewisham and Southwark so we teamed up with Ditton Minors who already hold their Charter Standard kit mark and understand the need for Millwall to be working within the Kent area.
