Military Veteran Football

Millwall Community Trust were recently successfully awarded via the Sky Bet EFL Building Foundations Fund support to set up and run a free Saturday 5-aside football session for ex-military service men and women. 

The programme in partnership with Military Veteran Football Club will provide ex-forces personnel from across London an opportunity to play  football via access to Millwall Community Trust’s indoor Lions Centre 3G on Saturdays.

The programme also intends to work with ex Forces Charities and support agencies and provide wrap around education, employability and health and well being support to attendees and Millwall ex forces volunteer ambassadors through CPD and workshops from armed forces charities and organisations and Millwall Community Trust’s Employability support team.

John Scarborough, Millwall Community Trust’s Education and Employability Manager said: “This is a great opportunity to help provide a positive physical activity provision for former Forces veterans on a weekly basis as well as a space to build back past relationships and develop new relatable friendships.” 

“I would strongly advise if you’re a current forces veteran or may know some who is and that may benefit from this programme to come down and meet the team. All our welcome to come down and play, watch or help out.”

Our session flyer can be found here with all the information on timings and location.
