Mitch Coaches including Chris Sowerby Head coach together with Leaders of the scout group and the Children of Mitch FC and Cubs and Beavers in their new kits.
MITCH FC held a summer training school with the 1st Skelmersdale 17th Ormskirk scout group and have formed an Under 8s team, playing in the Skelmersdale Junior League and a Cub Scout team who will be taking part in the Cubs League and tournaments.
An application was made to West Lancashire Borough Council for funding to provide kits and equipment for Mitch and the Scout group to enter the two teams. Mitch FC provided FA Qualified coaches and the scout group has allowed their premises to use as a meeting room for Mitch FC.
Ian Gregson Chairman of Mitch FC said: “We are a community based club and believe in partnership work with other community organisations to the benefit of the whole community.”
Charlie Cavanaghan of the 1st Skelmersdale scout group said: “We are the oldest scout group in Skelmersdale and amongst the other traditional scouting activities we can now offer Football coaching and playing in a team.”
The 1st Skelmersdale scout group has beavers, cubs and scouts open to boys and girls. Anyone who wants information about joining the group should call at the scout hut Barnes Road Skelmersdale on Wednesday or Friday at 7pm. Anyone interested in joining Mitch either as staff or players should contact Chris on 07834157781.
