Pitch Invasion allows the young people to play a high energy game of 5-a-side football every week in the local competition, regardless of their ability. Most of the games are played in 40 minute slots. It is great for their fitness and everyone gets a run around, and most of all everyone gets to have fun win or lose.
The young people started playing 18 months ago and have thoroughly enjoyed it, although at times it’s been hard as the results weren’t coming they have always kept their heads high and continued to play and try harder every week. They named the team Muntham Misfits and have done very well bearing in mind they are playing against men of all ages and abilities. They have interacted well with the community and also gained friendships with other teams. All in all the young people have a great time and continue to impress the staff with how they interact and communicate with each other. Friendships between the young people have become stronger as they are all in it together and help each other all the time.
