Rotherham United Community Sports Trust have celebrated Men’s Health Month across June with several important events and outreach activities.United 4 Communities FC launched its senior section with the team’s first friendly signalling the official launch of the team. United 4 Communities FC offers competitive football opportunities for young people and adults who may feel excluded from mainstream football provision due to a number of issues.
Also during the month, in partnership with the IYSS (Integrated Youth Support Service), the Trust hosted a football tournament which was attended by over 50 young people from the central area of Rotherham. The tournament showcased walking football along with the more traditional format. Players had the opportunity to wear heart rate monitors and to discuss wider health issues.
Nathan Carlin, Cohesion Coordinator and Chairman of United 4 Communities FC said “We have had a really busy month discussing and promoting the issues of men’s health, the launch of a senior men’s football team will have long term health benefits for everyone involved and our tournament which was played in an enjoyable and relaxing atmosphere provided the perfect platform to discuss wider health issues. We will be doing our upmost to carry on this work throughout the rest of the year.”
