World Book Day

Cheshire FA Are Delighted To Mark World Book Day!

Empowering and supporting children with their reading…

World Book Day is a drive to ensure that every child can discover the pleasure of reading, and that every child has the opportunity of owning a book of their own.

Winnington Park

Our Football Development Officer, Mike McNamara, is currently leading a project where staff from the Cheshire FA are currently attending Winnington Park Primary to assist and support children with developing their reading skills, and highlight the importance of reading and the benefits that reading can provide.

Mike highlighted: “Having previously worked in education, I understand the importance of reading and the positive impact it can have on every aspect of life. The reading with Winnington Park has given us the opportunity to hear the wonderful experiences of how the children developed a passion for reading.”

As a County FA, we are proud of our values of Inclusive, Progressive & Respectful; this is now underpinned with one of Cheshire FA’s key commitments of listening to ‘the voice of the child’. Through our work with local schools and clubs, we will be asking children about the reasons they enjoy and take part in football.
