Caernarfon Town’s Football in the Community scheme hits the back of the net.

A community football scheme has grown from strength to strength over the past year.

Caernarfon Town Football in the Community is an independent ‘not-for-profit’ organisation.

Based at Caernarfon Football Club, Caernarfon in the Community is committed to the delivery of high quality, inclusive development opportunities.

Its primary focus initially centred on the delivery of these activities for the Gwynedd communities; however, as a direct result of its cumulative success it has broadened this remit to provide programme activity throughout North Wales.

The scheme currently runs fun lunch clubs,  and after school football and also the very popular school term football camps.

In the last 12 months which was their first year since starting they went to the following primary schools to coach fun football: Ysgol Yr Hendre, Maesincla, Santes Helen, Y Gelli, Llandwrog, Rhostryfan, Rhosgadfan, Nefyn and also two secondary schools Ysgol Syr Hugh Owen and Dyffryn Nantlle.

They have also delivered sessions to local children through the CCG and North Wales Police scheme back in October 2014.

Wales Express caught up with former Everton and Torquay United player, Nathan Craig, who is now the Caernarfon Town Football in the Community Officer, to shoot a video of some of the youngsters benefiting from the summer sessions currently being held on Mondays and Tuesdays at Cae Top, Ysgol yr Hendre, Caernarfon.
