Sir Geoff Hurst Visits Hereford Lads Club

Sir Geoff Hurst Visits Hereford Lads Club

England legend Sir Geoff Hurst visited Hereford and met the young football stars of tomorrow. World cup hat-trick hero Hurst, still the only man to score three times in a World Cup final, visited us to promote the FA Community Awards.

“I really enjoy turning up at clubs like this and see the young kids who start from the age of five here start on their road in football,” said Sir Geoff.

“Grassroots football is the lifeblood of the game and clubs like Hereford Lads Club are so important to communities up and down the country.
“They are an excellent club that offers football to players of all abilities.

“All football starts at grassroots, most of the players we see at the top end now in the Premier League and the national side would have started at four or five years of age at clubs like this.
“If you take away these facilities and the people involved, grassroots football would be in a sorry state.”
“It is absolutely vital to the progress of our top players.
“There is no question that the greater number of players we have at this level, the greater they will be at the top end.”
“Our voting starts now for the FA Community Awards, sponsored by McDonald’s, and we want everyone to vote for their heroes, whether it be a league or a club, a coach, someone may have served as a chairman or served teas forever.”“You see people around here, like the coaches and players, the chairman of the club, are all an important aspect of giving young kids an opportunity to play football in a fun and safe environment.
Many of Lads Club’s young players had their photograph taken with Hurst and got his autograph, while the England legend also oversaw some of their training sessions.
Indie-Mae Allen Allen, who plays for the under-10 Pumas side, was one player who had her photo taken with him.
“It was nice to meet him and really good,” said Indie-Mae, who is a midfielder/striker for her team.
Hereford Lads Club chairman Wayne Sheehan said it was a proud day for the club and that the club were honoured to welcome Sir Geoff the former West Ham and England star.
“To welcome Sir Geoff Hurst to our club was an amazing experience and one that the parents and players haven’t stopped talking about,” said Wayne.
“His achievements in football are outstanding and we are thrilled that he took the time to visit us.
“We are lucky to be blessed with dedicated volunteers who put in so much time into supporting the club, it would be very rewarding experience if we were to be nominated and successful.”
Lads Club was formed in 1925 and currently has 14 boy and 15 girl teams, as well as two adult sides.
“Football at grassroots level has been a bit tough these last few years, so getting parents involved in clubs is essential,” added Wayne.
“So the more we can get things like this, the better.”
Football development officer Jason Watkins added that the club are heavily involved in the community.
“We go into schools and get ourselves involved in the community as much as we can,” he said.
“As we are a charity, we hold fundraising events here as well.
“It’s nice to see all the children see Geoff Hurst. When you explain to him who he is and what he’s achieved, their eyes light up and want to meet him.

Hereford Lads Club re-launch Inclusive Football

Hereford Lads Club re-launch Inclusive Football

Disability Football Sessions for Herefordshire Youngsters

Hereford Lads Club are delighted to announce the re-launch of Inclusive Football. These sessions provide opportunities for structured football training for boys and girls of secondary school age on a weekly basis with qualified coaches. There are also possible opportunities to compete against similar teams in Worcestershire and Shropshire in a Three Counties League.

Hereford Lad’s Club has raised over £4,000 to help develop the sessions, used to provide a kit for the participants and booking a regular training session at the Point 4 centre.

But the Herefordshire Team need more players! Currently, a core of half a dozen or so young people, of varying disabilities, meet in their Hereford Lad’s Club kit every Wednesday evening during term time to practice their skills, run through exercises and drills and enjoy each other’s company.

As the name suggests, the Inclusive Football sessions are for young people who enjoy football regardless of their skill levels or their additional needs.

Hereford Lad’s Club Welfare Officer, Jamie Wright, who has helped develop the sessions said, “The club has always believed in promoting sport to children and young adults of all abilities. These sessions will allow both the parents and players to be part of the ‘community spirit’ of the club – every child deserves the right to play sport in a safe and caring environment. We’re looking to promote the sessions within local schools and specialists centres where children and young adult with disabilities attend.”

Jamie is available for further comment on: 07736197206

Inclusive Football member Louis Baker said, “I like the football sessions because I like scoring goals and having fun with my friends. I think my football is getting better and I really like being part of a team. I think the new kit is great! I hope some more players will come and join the team.”

The sessions run every Wednesday in term time from 6.00pm – 7.00pm at The Point 4.
