Community Engagement 2023

As 2023 comes to a close and we reflect on what has been an amazing year on the pitch we’ve also decided to have a look back at what the wider areas of the club have been up to.

To say it’s been a busy year in our Community department is an understatement but we know how important the club is to the people of West Cumbria and we are determined to offer the best service we can to everyone.

  • 1000 Junior Membership Cards for local school children
  • 210 boys and girls in our Academy pathway
  • 1 brand new Ability Counts squad
