Kickstarting young peoples’ interest in sport can be one of the most rewarding things to do.

This is something which the team at Cambs FA is well aware of thanks to its community activity programme.

Residents of Lime Avenue in Wisbech have spent the past 18 months getting involved in Kickstart where they have been playing football.

“The event turned into a proper family occasion and we had around 50 kids playing sports which is amazing.

“Everyone came out and had a really fun day.”

The youngsters will be able to continue with the football sessions and will soon be able to carry on with cricket thanks to the Kickstart programme.
