Argyle Community Trust Manager Mark Lovell said: “Firstly we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Shear Soccer to develop community activities and provisions within Devon. Through the fund we will be able to offer schools and community groups the opportunity to be involved within a professional club and be involved in some excellent provisions that link into government agendas and the national curriculum.
“We currently operate in over 70 schools in Cornwall and Devon and our aim is to ensure that we can provide this service to other areas of Devon that will ensure young people and families get the opportunity to experience these provisions.
