Kids bored of their presents by Boxing Day? Moaning there’s nothing to do? Why not get them out of the house and on to the football pitch to kick off 2013 with a football roadshow run by Exeter City’s Football in the Community Trust.

The Trust is running several events before the school holidays end: three two-day courses and five one-day courses all for boys and girls aged from five to 14. The main football focus is fun and participation through team and individual games and all courses are delivered by Exeter City’s FA-qualified coaching staff.

The two-day courses, which run on Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 January, will take place at Middlemoor Police headquarters in Exeter, Exmouth FC and Sidmouth FC, while the one-day events on Friday January 4, are at Barnstaple (Park School), Feniton (Feniton FC), Tiverton (Tiverton High School), Honiton (Honiton Primary School) and Crediton (Lords Meadow).

“We know that once the excitement of Christmas is past that children need an outlet for all their energy before they go back to school,” says Scott Walker, sports development officer for the Football in the Community Trust. “These roadshows are a great way for them to get out of the house and really blow away all the cobwebs at the start of a new year.”

Courses are £27 for the two-day events and £15 for the one-day events. Children can also attend the two-day courses for just one day at a price of £15.
