Harrogate Town talk to young people about a career in the football industry.A career within football doesn't always have to be centred around being a player; there are dozens of roles from matchday stewards to junior coaches.
Held over two days, Willowtree Primary School in Harrogate organised a careers event that showcased local businesses and professions that may be of interest to pupils.
With the growth of the Harrogate Town AFC Community Foundation and the progress made within the club, Iain Service – Community Development Manager, was there to provide information and career advice.
“Willowtree Primary School is very familiar to Harrogate Town AFC. Not only with the proximity to the CNG Stadium, but also the values and culture making sure all pupils have an opportunity to learn and develop a routine to be healthy, both physically and mentally.”
Iain continues: “The opportunity to visit the school and speak to pupils was fantastic. They were polite, respectful and had dozens of questions.”
One of the main aims of the day was to reinforce the importance of working hard to achieve your dreams.
Harrogate Town AFC Community Foundation are keen to continue their work with Willowtree and would be excited to assist in future career days.
