The FA have created a new initiative aimed at tackling the drop out from football of teenagers in the 14-17 age group. Football Mash Up is a dedicated programme aimed at 14 to 17 year old boys and girls who have either dropped out of football or are on the verge of doing so. Dedicated after-school sessions will be delivered across Shropshire on a weekly basis in partnership with FA Charter Standard Clubs and local schools. FA Qualified coaches will facilitate a fun and social session where the young people will play a range of 5-a-side games, with the focus on enjoyment rather than it being excessively competitive.
Details of the Football Mash Up sessions in Shropshrie can be found below;
