YOUNG people can enjoy 120 hours of free football sessions in Taunton this month.

McDonald’s franchisee David Hurst is providing the free, safe, Fun Football sessions for town children between five and 11 at Taunton Vale Sports Club. 

In partnership with all four Football Associations across the UK, McDonald’s and franchisees - Mr Hurst - are providing hundreds of free sessions during 2021.

After four successful sessions were held in the spring and summer, McDonald’s is offering another four more sessions in Taunton for families to sign their children up for, meaning 120 under elevens will have the opportunity to learn from top FA coaches.

Mr Hurst said: “Being active has a benefit for children – and I’m delighted to be able to help facilitate 120 hours of free Fun Football sessions for children in the Taunton area.

"With coaching provided by FA qualified coaches, it is a great opportunity to experience football for the first time or to work on developing skills and technique.

“The Fun Football sessions held in Taunton this spring and summer were well attended and a success for everyone involved.

"Following the inspirational performances of the Three Lions on the European Stage this summer, we hope as many boys and girls as possible are encouraged to become involved football.”

The sessions run from 9am-10am on September 11, 18 and 25 and on October 2.
