Autism Football

Autistic children and teenagers are being invited to enjoy FREE football via the Rangers Charity Foundation.

Youngsters aged 5 – 16 can come along to the Pro Soccer Newton Mearns at Rouken Glen Park for enjoyable football sessions with the Foundation’s specially trained coaches.

The weekly sessions will begin at 6pm for 5 to 10 year-olds and 7pm for 11 to 16 year-olds.

Senior Community Executive, Jordan Boyd, said: “We’re delighted to have launched our official Autism Football sessions, after running a very popular trial project.

“The sessions are aimed at youngsters on the autistic spectrum, who might not otherwise be able to take part in mainstream football.

“It’s a great opportunity for them to make new friends and develop their football skills with our coaches. But places are limited and we expect them to get booked up quickly – so get in touch!”

For more information, or to register a child, email rangerscharity@rangers.co.uk or call 0141 580 8775.

The Rangers Charity Foundation would like to thank Better Breaks for their funding support.
