Terry scores a top job
Kirkby dad Terry Latham has good reason to celebrate the first anniversary of a successful football coaching project.
Terry, 27, who spent more than 150 hours volunteering with the Everton in the Community soccer sessions across Kirkby, has now been offered a job as a coach with the project. Since its launch in January, the coaching – a partnership between community groups, the council, Everton in the Community, Your Housing Group and Liverpool Housing Trust (LHT) – has gone from strength to strength. Hundreds of young people regularly attend the evening sessions in Towerhill, Westvale, Southdene and Northwood.
As well as building youngsters’ soccer skills, the project is committed to creating job opportunities for local people. Terry, from Westvale, who has his sights set on a career in football management, works alongside Everton in the Community Youth Worker Anthony Witterick, from Southdene, who was one of the first successful candidates on the Knowsley Apprentice programme.
