European Football for Development Network
Links Park Community Trust and Montrose Football Club are presenting at the European Football for Development Network conference in Wolfsburg today!
The EFDN is a collaboration of 'community-focussed' football clubs from across Europe who discuss and plan ways in which the power of football can be used to address the needs of the communities in which they are based. Only four clubs from any European country can join, to ensure that there is a strong representation from all areas, so we are delighted that we will be able to contribute to the work of the EFDN, alongside some elusive partners such as AEK Athens, Manchester United and PSV amongst others. It is hoped that our membership of such a prestigious organisation will benefit and enhance the work we do within sport, education and health locally!
