Corby McDonald’s franchisee, Glyn Pashley, said: “It is fantastic that we can help get children back playing football again together after such uncertain times.

“It’s so important that children take this opportunity to keep active which will benefit both their physical and mental health, so it truly is an honour to be involved in this scheme and to work with the FA alongside other franchisees, and the business, to give even more children the chance to hone their skills – no matter their ability.”

Taking place at Tresham Corby Campus in Oakley Road, Corby children between the ages of five and 11 will be given a physical and mental boost after the lockdown restrictions.

A spokesman for the scheme said: "Getting kids active after a long year of lockdown restrictions is key to keeping them mentally and physically healthy. Whether they are first-timers or keen to get back to developing their skills, every child can turn up, take part and enjoy."

McDonald's funded Fun Football session

In total 120 Corby budding footballers will be able to access the course. Two Fun Football sessions have already taken place but there are still spaces available at sessions on Saturday, April 24 and May 1, from midday to 1pm.

The McDonald’s Fun Football sessions are part of McDonald’s programme that aims to provide five million hours of free fun football coaching to children in the UK by 2022.

For those who are unable to make the dates, McDonald’s also has a suite of football skills, tricks, downloadable packs and video drills that can be learnt at home from pro footballers Jack Rutter, Casey Stoney and Martin Keown.
