Having disbanded the football teams the previous year, the club is rebuilding the squad, in order to develop teams again to enter competitions. This year, this began with coachign sessions at West View, where 15 young people attended sessions.
Coaching for 11 to 15 year olds was run in Avenham.
Fifteen young people participated.
A highly successful coaching programme was held at the Penwortham Playing Fields, where sixteen young boys took part in coaching sessions.
The club embarked on a new initiative following research that it undertook, which showed that disabled people, in particular young disabled people, often had lower levels of sporting participation, especially during after schools hours.
As a result of this, the club teamed up with Preston Panthers Disability sports club and Sir Tom Finney High School and organised football coaching for disabled young people during after school hours.
A total of twelve young disabled people took part.
The club organised coaching sessions for young people and attracted over 20 people.
