Our community program has been building momentum in recent months and we are particularly pleased with the success of our Adult Education Diploma program based just a short distance from Kinsealy United. The objective of ‘Reds Together’ is to make a positive impact on the lives of people living in our local community, and we are very much looking forward to working with Kinsealy United to deliver initiatives that will encourage participation in football, education and wellbeing of the Clubs members.”
