West Ham United Community Sports Trust has set up an exciting new partnership with two prestigious schools.

The partnership will see Trust coaches deliver Player Development courses at Framlingham College and Brandeston Hall in Woodbridge, Suffolk.

The courses will be held with the aim of engaging as many pupils from the two schools as possible, while they will also be open to youngsters living locally as the Trust and Framlingham College work together to increase sports participation.


The Trust, which has previously held two successful Player Development courses at Framlingham College in October 2012 and February 2013, will host a two-day course at Brandeston Hall on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 August.

The partnership will continue throughout the 2013/14 season, with further courses being held during the three half-term holidays, starting with a three-day course between 28-30 October at Brandeston Hall.

Trust football development officer Bryan Glover said the partnership was the latest example of the Club's commitment to making sport accessible to as many children as possible.

"I am delighted to have established this partnership with Dan Wood at Framlingham College as it gives us the opportunity to establish delivery in a new area and community," said Glover. "When I attended Framlingham College and Brandeston Hall, I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of West Ham supporters I met

"I have since found out that there is a large fan base in Suffolk, which is great, and I hope to see as many West Ham fans on the courses as possible.

"Our aim is to deliver regular courses at both Framlingham College and Brandeston Hall throughout the 2013/14 season."

The two-day Player Development course to be held in August will run from 9am-3pm each day and is open to boys and girls of all abilities aged 6-14. Prices per child are £30 for one day and £55 for two days, with a ten per cent sibling discount.
