Webhelp UK kicks-off kids’ football initiative with Derby County Football Club

15th September 2014

Leading customer experience company, Webhelp UK is celebrating the start of the football season with the launch of a new childrenÂ’s coaching initiative with Derby County Football Club.

As part of Webhelp UK’s on-going partnership with the club, the new ‘Kids Coaching Clinics’ will give Webhelp UK team members’ children free football training sessions at every home matchday this season.

Delivered by Derby CountyÂ’s Community Trust coaches, the sessions will give more than thirty kids the chance to hone their skills and put their talent to the test in front of representatives from the club.

Each child that attends the free session will also get the chance to see how the professionals do it in person, and will be invited to attend a first-team game at the iPro Stadium.

The initiative is the latest in a series of tie-ups between the Championship side and Webhelp UKÂ’s Pride Park site, where the 1,200-strong team regularly welcome members of the Derby squad to take part in charity events and signing sessions.

Tony Moorhouse, Customer Experience Manager at Webhelp UK played a key role in organising the ‘Kids Coaching Clinic’ initiative.

He said: “Getting kids involved in sport at an early age not only improves their fitness and health, but also builds discipline and develops team working.

“We’re pleased to have worked with Derby County Football Club, as part of our ongoing partnership, to develop these training clinics and give our team members’ children the chance to have fun, get involved and learn new skills under the guidance of Derby’s finest.”

Ashley Peden, Derby County Football Club, Commercial Manager said: “Derby County is pleased to continue its partnership with Webhelp UK with the development of the Kids Coaching Clinics.

“Many of the Webhelp team members’ children are already showing great promise, so it may just be that some of the youngsters involved could be future Rams stars.”

Later this year, Webhelp UK also hopes to work with the club to offer its team members the chance to train towards a FA level 1 coaching badge.
