Dedicating the game to the youth in the borough, Young Greenwich Day was set up in celebration of CACT running the council’s youth service, Young Greenwich, to showcase the power of football to engage with youth.

Parents and carers were also able to get a taste of Short Breaks, a programme available for young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
Speaking about the day’s success, CACT’s director of youth and inclusion Marc Leckie said, “Thank you to the club for supporting this initiative and the CAFC fans for their continued and much valued support of the work of CACT.
“I would like to note my thanks to all of the hard-working and dedicated staff, partners and young people who collectively make programmes such as the youth service and short breaks for disabled young people the successes they are.
