Kicking up a storm with REIDsteel and Romain

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth were pleased to deliver a unique Premier League Kicks session with REIDsteel in Christchurch.

Last month, Romain Faivre and Steve Fletcher took part in the session and spent time with youngsters participating.

REIDsteel, a family-owned business based in Christchurch, is one of the UK’s top steelwork construction and cladding companies.

The project with AFC Bournemouth offers free football and additional opportunities to over 1,000 young people locally a year.

Since the initiative was launched in 2006, more than half a million young people have benefited on a national level with Premier League Kicks.

Donna Campo, Operations Director of REIDsteel, spoke to afcbTV following the event: “It’s really important for us to give back. We’ve been at our home in Christchurch for over 50 years and, although we export all around the world, our base is still really important to us.

“We have employees that live locally and others that have grown up here so it’s really important that we do something in this area.”

Sessions take place at Mudeford Wood Community Centre on a Wednesday between 4pm and 5pm for ages 8-10, and between 5pm and 6pm for ages 11-14.

There is no pre-registration needed for any of the sessions, as they all operate on a turn-up-and-play basis.
