Cup Final Project

Free football coaching fails to lure Bookham youngsters


December 5, 2009: The attendance at the first meeting for Bookham's Cup Final Project was a huge disappointment for the organisers. As reported, the scheme was organised by Mole Valley Housing (MVHA) to give offer local boys and girls professional football and other coaching. The first coaching sessions by professionals from Brighton & Hove Albion FC are due to take place at Lower Road recreation ground on January 12. But just four youngsters turned up to the first signing session at the Bookham Youth and Community Centre on December 1. Attendance at later meetings was even lower. MVHA are now trying to work out why the meetings were poorly attended and what happens now.
The news is the more surprising since even older residents believe Bookham's youngsters get a raw deal. One pensioner told a recent residents' meeting that Bookham was "a God-forsaken hole with nothing to offer its youngsters, and the people who criticise them should "get off their backsides" and do something to help.
