NCS Matchday Comes To The Vic

7 February 2020

The Club's Community Sports Foundation are celebrating the

impact that young people from Hartlepool have had in the community with NCS

Matchday this weekend.

Our fixture with Aldershot Town has been designated as our

#NCSMatchday, an awareness-raising campaign surrounding the hugely successful

National Citizen Service scheme for youngsters aged between 15 and 17.

In 2019, young people from the EFL Trust's network delivered

over 650 social action projects, volunteered over 260,000 hours of social

action and raised over £230,000 for local charities and good causes. This

includes over 4,200 hours and £3,000 raised by young people working directly

with our Community Sports Foundation at Pools.

This Saturday's event will be part of a wider EFL Trust

campaign that will see #NCSMatchday reach over 36 EFL, Premier League and

National League clubs across the country to highlight the positive work that

young people have done in their local communities.

“I am really looking forward to celebrating the great work

our local teens have done in the community while taking part in NCS,” said

Pools skipper Ryan Donaldson.

“NCS is a fantastic programme that gives young people the

chance to expand their horizons by getting involved in new activities and

challenges, whilst also making great friends and benefitting the local area.”

As part of the campaign, Pools players will be warming-up in

NCS t-shirts ahead of Saturday's game to help spread the word and celebrate the

youngsters involved in the various projects in this area.
