McDonalds / Swindon Council Leisure Team Football Open Day

John Barnes Entertaining Potential Future Stars

I was delighted to attend the 'McDonald's Football Open Day' in association with Swindon Town FC and Swindon Borough Council's Leisure Team.

The Open Day events is part of the community programme encouraging local youngsters to pull on their boots and join in the sporting fun.

The Open Day included coaching sessions, a mini tournament, skills inflatables and the chance to meet John Barnes, who spent time chatting, playing football and encouraging the children throughout the day.

Justin Tomlinson MP, "I was delighted to attend this Open Day.  Hundreds of children were able to enjoy the glorious sunshine and combined with the World Cup fever it will play an important part in encouraging an active lifestyle for all the children involved."
