Addicks Defender visits CACT holiday course

Michael Hector meeting young people

Last week Michael Hector paid a visit to the Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) February half-term football holiday courses and met over 160 young people.

Hector came by to be part of a Q&A session with the young people, who quizzed him on everything from his own footballing career to the best stadiums he has played in and how many press ups he can do!

Reflecting on his visit to the courses, Hector said:

“I think for the community it is important, there’s 160 kids here today during half-term and it’s nice weather. It’s good to interact with them, obviously they love football you can tell by the questions, some of them were funny and it was good to interact with them.

Hector went on to explain the importance of having activities like this for kids during half-term:

“I know a lot of the kids you see at some of the events like this you’ll see at the stadium as well so it’s a good family club and they do a lot of work with the community. I think that it’s important to help the kids like this especially in half-term to have somewhere like this where they can come and play football and enjoy themselves.”

CACT was delighted to welcome over 500 young people to the courses across Eltham, Thamesmead, Sevenoaks, Bearsted and Ashford.

Easter holiday football courses are now available to book! They will be running in New Eltham, Thamesmead, Bearsted, Sevenoaks and Ashford. Book a place here.
