Great attendance to football tournament organised by Pyle & Cornelly PCSOs
Last week Pyle and Cornelly Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) held a football tournament, which attracted around 50 children from Years 5 and 6.
The event, held at Ysgol Y Ferch Oâ€™r Sger Primary Welsh School, was organised by PCSO Kyle Maiden from Pyle and Cornelly NPT, who played alongside other PCSOs in a football team against the children.
The Neighbourhood Policing Team have organised for summertime PCSO football games to be played against all the local schools in the Pyle and Cornelly area. This involves the PCSO team visiting local schools throughout June and July to play against willing Year 5 and Year 6 teams. All children who take part are presented with a certificate and, before the end of this school term, a trophy will be presented to the school which showed the best effort and attitude whilst playing the football games.
PCSO Kyle Maiden said: â€œThe days have been a great success so far with brilliant turn outs. All the children have enjoyed themselves and taken the games seriouslyâ€.
â€œItâ€™s great to be able to set up events like this and it allows us to build bridges between ourselves and the kids. It also allows us to engage with them on a more personal levelâ€.
PCSO Maiden added: â€œ We would like to thank everyone who attended and took part in the football games and for showing huge enthusiasm and team effortâ€.
