One Goal will be primarily run by Coventry Sports Foundation staff with support from Sky Blues in the Community and CCFC.

After receiving the news that all the places for the scheme has been filled, development director Waggott was delighted to help support the local community.

He commented: "This summer's programme is just the beginning. We wanted to get a project underway quickly and that is why Tim and I decided to put our own money forward.

"The response to the project has been absolutely fantastic and we are delighted that we can support such an important initiative in Coventry.
