Colchester United's Football in the Community team enjoyed a busy day on Tuesday, as they joined in on the EFL's Community Day of Action.
Clubs around the country celebrated the great work they do in their local communities and the U's community scheme, which recently launched it's 2018-21 Unite Our Communities strategy, was busy at work across the local area.
The day started with a Year One multi-skills session at Langenhoe Primary School, before our coaches headed to Boxted to provide a Premier League Primary Stars session with the pupils there.
One of our newest projects is United Against Knife Crime and we were at a number of primary and secondary schools to spread the word on the dangers of knives.
We were also joined by Look East, who spoke to project coordinator Tom Tayler about the successes of the scheme so far.
Later in the day, our Development Centre players were met by U23s winger Ryan Clampin, with Eoin McKeown and Sam Warde heading to the dome for our evening Premier League Kicks sessions!
Thanks to all of the players for their participation and thanks to the schools for hosting us as we continue to spread the word on the U's into the local community.
