Footy mad youngsters from Conisbrough, Denaby and Mexborough are taking part in free football sessions at Dearne Valley Leisure Centre.

The sessions, organised by Doncaster Council Communities West Area Team are held every Monday from 4-5pm and are open to youngsters aged 15 and under.

Councillor Cynthia Ransome, cabinet member for communities, street scene and environmental protection, said: “Young people in Conisbrough and Denaby told us that they would like some sporting sessions within the community and we were happy to help.

“I am pleased with the ever increasing numbers of young people who are attending on a regular basis.

“The sessions are now so popular that we are seeing children from neighbouring areas asking to come and join in.”
