The Club is delighted that it is setting up a Mental Wellbeing team for next season.

The club is providing weekly coaching sessions for men and women aged 16 and above, who suffer from mental welfare issues. The aim being to get people out of the house, meet similar suffers and get some physical activity, whilst learning new skills.

Coach Adam Collins said ‘the evidence is there to suggest physical activity such as football reduces signs and symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. Not only are we targeting individuals mental wellbeing but also there physical wellbeing’. As a mental health nurse who has worked in the healthcare sector for over 15 years he added ‘I have seen first hand at how physical activity can have a positive impact upon an individuals physical and mental health’.


Keith Hardy, Chairman of the Club said ‘the club’s ethos is for ‘football for all’ and we are delighted that Adam has stepped forward to help us achieve one of our objectives’. He went on ‘the club already provides football for girls and women, disabled footballers and the over 35s and is also shortly to announce the creation of deaf and blind teams.’
