George Evans joined Community Trust ‘Kicks’ session in BasingstokeMidfielder George Evans visited a Community Trust ‘Kicks’ session at the Everest Community Academy in Basingstoke, where he met up with the Mayor of Basingstoke and the local Constabulary to watch the young footballers play.
The project provides young people, aged 11 to 19 years old, with a safe and structured opportunity to engage with free football sessions. The project helps to bring young people from all backgrounds and cultures together and this will only help the communities.
Evans watched the session and then held a Q&A with the kids with many of the questions focused on his time at Manchester City.
Social Inclusion Manager Paul Brown said: “It’s great to be able to expand the successful Kicks project into Basingstoke. The project has had great success in engaging with huge numbers of young people over the years and we are looking forward to providing these opportunities to young people living in the Basingstoke area.”

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council
Cllr Jane Frankum, The Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane
Cllr Simon Bound, Cabinet Member for Communities and Community Safety
