Anti-Bullying Workshops Held At North End To Educate Academy Players

28 November 2014

A series of anti-bullying workshops have recently been held with North End’s Academy players in attendance to promote anti-bullying week.

Lenny St Jean, an equality and diversity co-ordinator at Myerscough College, conducted three separate workshops for the club’s young players, broken down into U9s-U11s, U12s-U14s and U15s-U16s with a view to educating the youths on the pitfalls of bullying.

Each workshop was perfectly pitched for the respective age group and the feedback from the players was very positive and one of enjoyment and learning.

Parents at the Academy were also extremely supportive of the workshops, many expressing their delight that the Club is taking positives steps to educate young footballers on such a tough issue.

The sessions were developed and delivered in a manner to give the youngsters advice and skills that can be used in and outside of football to help them progress towards adulthood.

Preston North End’s Academy would like to extend its thanks to Lenny and Myerscough College for their efforts in making this a successful night for all partners, players and parents in attendance.
