More good news for American Football in Greater Manchester, as the Manchester Titans kick start another Under 17 squad.
This latest development comes after the Titans secured funding from Greater Sport. The Manchester Titans Under 17s East Team began training last Sunday 17th June at Crossley playing fields, Rochester Way, Chadderton (OL9 9BQ). The team will be training from 10:00 – 12:00 and it’s open to anybody age 12 to 16 years of age.
This venture was set up in order to reach young people and young athletes who would love to get involved with the game but currently live out of current areas provided. This team will cater for the East of Manchester with predominantly players coming from; Oldham, Chadderton, Saddleworth, Moorside, Shaw and Springhead. With interest already coming from Blue Coat School and Saddleworth School.
The Titans Funding and Development Officer Caleb Jackson said “We are keen to work alongside schools in Oldham to provide wonderful taster sessions for American football and we can now also provide an excellent opportunity for non traditional sport students to excel within their own right in a sport that is rising rapidly across the UK.”
The team will be looking to build on this expansion by recruiting new players with a view to playing friendlies in the next 4 months and competing alongside the Titans two existing Under 17 teams in the 2019 British National Leagues. Head of Non-Adult Football Verity Brawn said “it’s great to see that our focus on youth and junior football is continuing at the forefront of our culture and growing the grassroots within the club.”
The Coaching Team boast experience and pedigree, with players from the Titans Premiership Adult team and local Oldham based Youth and Women’s coaches to create a dynamic group for this new venture.
