Youth Council focus for EFL Day of Action

City stars from the men and women's teams will be experiencing firsthand the fantastic work of the Community Trust's award-winning Youth Council.

Liam Walsh, Ryan Kent, Niclas Eliasson, Cauley Woodrow, Frank Fielding and Eros Pisano will be joined by kitman Scott Murray and Vixens trio Jasmine Matthews, Yana Daniels and Danique Kerkdijk to see just how the young council is delivering practical programmes across Bristol.

It is part of the EFL's Day of Action, which sees all 72 clubs attending events up and down the country on Tuesday (March 20th) to demonstrate the positive impact football can have in changing young people’s lives.

It aims to shine the light on big society issues surrounding education, health, community inclusion and participation.

The Trust's Youth Council has already been involved in the Bristol clean up, hosted a girls football event, developed and delivered an anti-poverty free football camp, held a free disability holiday camp, developed a Mumball session and hosts a weekly youth disability workshop.

Only last week, the group were presented with the Checkatrade South West Community Club of the Year award by EFL Chairman Ian Lenagan, Sports Minister Tracey Crouch and host Colin Murray at an awards ceremony at the Houses of Parliament.

City will now be put forward alongside Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough, Charlton Athletic, Portsmouth and Derby County for the 2018 Checkatrade Community Club of the Year Award, which will be announced at the EFL Awards on Sunday, April 15th.
