Preston North End Community and Education Trust have launched two new PL Kicks sessions, taking its number of weekly sessions under the programme to ten!
PL Kicks is a Premier League initiative that provides young people aged eight to 18 with the chance to access free football sessions, which are run by qualified coaches, across the UK.
The programme recently had its funding renewed for another three years and as part of the relaunch fortnight, the Trust held a regional tournament with eleven teams from across the North West representing professional clubs.

Now, there will be a new weekly PL Kicks session in both Ashton and Plungington.
On a Monday, from 5pm until 6pm, Moor Lane MUGA will host one session, before another is held on a Wednesday at Ashton Primary School MUGA (multi-use games arena), from 4.30pm until 5.30pm.
There are also plans being made to introduce another new session in Ingol at the club’s community training centre, with details to be confirmed over the coming weeks.
The Kicks programme also gives young people the chance to represent Preston North End Community and Education Trust in regional and national tournaments.
Last week, youngsters who take part in our session at Callon participated in a tournament held by Everton, with the children involved even having the chance to get changed in North End’s own dressing rooms at Deepdale before their departure to Merseyside.
One of the children even described it as “the stuff dreams are made of!”
