Young Footballers Visiting Plymouth Argyle This Weekend

Youngsters taking part in the Argyle training session on the Garrison earlier this year

30 islands youngsters and 9 adults are off to Plymouth Argyle this weekend to continue the football coaching sessions with the club’s Matchday Magic programme.

Argyle’s football development staff came over to teach skills on the Garrison earlier this year. Their service is funded by a separate community initiative to the club, which is currently in administration.

Tomorrow, Scilly’s footballers will be training at Home Park and will go on a stadium tour after lunch.

They’ll also get to see the Plymouth Raiders basketball team over the weekend.

The Council Extended Services fund has helped finance the trip.
