The Way Youth Zone take on Wolves, West Brom and Villa in Wolves Premier League Kicks Tournament

Young people from The Way Youth Zone recently competed in the Wolves Premier League Kicks Tournament against rivals West Bromwich Albion, Aston Villa Football Club and Wolves Kicks Premier League youth team. The young people, aged between 11-13 years old, took part in their first competitive football tournament on Tuesday 23rd August at the Wolves Community Trust Dome in Aldersley.

Jenni Williams, Sports Coordinator at The Way Youth Zone, said:

"This was a great opportunity for our young people to play in their first ever tournament. The whole of the Youth Zone were behind them."

The Way Youth Zone works closely with Wolves Community Trust, with WCT coaches hosting regular training sessions at the Youth Zone and supporting planning and delivery of the football programme.

Glenn Evans, Youth Work Manager at The Way Youth Zone, said:

"Our football programme is fantastic thanks to the support of the Wolves Community Trust team. Wolves Community Trust come to the Youth Zone every day and deliver top quality training to our young people. They're brilliant."

On Wednesday 24th August our senior football team (aged 16-19 years old) played their second fixture since the opening of The Way. Wolves Community Trust arranged a friendly against Premier League Kicks team.
