Vice-Captain Helps Kick Off Week Of Action

Club vice-captain Gethin Jones joined fans young and old to help Bolton Wanderers in the Community launch their EFL Week of Action.

Community departments from all clubs in the EFL are showcasing the work they do during the dedicated week of activities designed to highlight some of the most impactful community projects taking place across the country.

Wanderers’ defender Jones supported an event at St Saviour CoE Primary School in Radcliffe which brought together two of the bigger projects run by BWitC. 

An inter-generational activity involved pupils who are part of the Premier League Primary Stars programme run by the Whites’ community programme with older adults who attend ‘Extra Time Hub’ sessions hosted at the University of Bolton Stadium.

The youngsters planned physical activities and team games which they then enjoyed alongside the older adults, with Jones joining one of the mixed teams.

“I really enjoyed it,” said Gethin. “It’s good to come down and see the inter-action between the kids and the older supporters.

“They come and support us on match days, so it’s good for us to come down, join in some activities and answer their questions.

“It also shows some of the fantastic work the community department does at Wanderers and across all clubs in the EFL.

“I know helping and reaching out to all sections of the community is really important to both the club and the community department at Wanderers and it’s something we want to support wherever we can.”
