ARGYLE Community Trust and Torpoint YMCA have created a new and exciting partnership that aims to signpost emerging talent into Argyle’s player pathway.
The Community Trust will run half-term courses from the YMCA facility throughout the year with their experienced and qualified staff. Working with Torpoint YMCA, both bodies want to provide positive footballing experiences for the community.
Torpoint YMCA boasts fantastic facilities that allows them to carry out some excellent work in the community and see great numbers attending sessions.
Assistant Community Manager at Argyle Community Trust Jason Chapman said “This is an exciting new partnership in the area and we are delighted to be working with Karl Curtis at Torpoint YMCA centre on a number of community programmes and providing positive experiences for the young people of the area.”
Torpoint YMCA Sports Centre Manager Karl Curtis added: “We are delighted to establish a working partnership with Plymouth Argyle Football Club and their Community Trust. This partnership will benefit all our young footballers and families, who attend our weekly YMCA football coaching sessions at Torpoint & Rame Community Sports Centre.
“We have a big footballing community in Torpoint & Rame with many talented boys and girls who attend our sessions. As well as hopefully having some of our players potentially progress into one of PAFC youth set-ups, we also hope to create some positive footballing memories for players and families, who may not of had the opportunity to experience a match-day at Home Park before.
“You never know, we may even have some young footballers, who we hope may go on to wear the famous Green shirt one day.”
