Syrian Soccer Starts Again

Football sessions have kicked off again after Christmas


The free football sessions for refugees and asylum seekers resumed on Friday 11th January 2019.

Since autumn of last year, Burnley Football Club have very kindly arranged some free football sessions especially for refugees and asylum seekers now living in East Lancashire. The free sessions are held weekly and enable the refugees and asylum seekers to stay fit and healthy. Moreover it is yet another opportunity to practice their English language skills.

This week we had some new attendees come along and join in for a kick-about at Burnley Football Club. 

If you are an asylum seeker, refugee or work with these groups and would like more information on how to get involved in the free football sessions please contact Allison Lindgren on 01282 433740 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
