Swap the eggs for footballs this Easter
WITH Easter coming at the very start of the school holidays, parents will be keen to encourage their children to get out from underneath a pile of chocolate eggs and take some exercise afterwards, so Exeter City's Football in the Community Charitable Trust's events are a great way for them to let off steam as well as have fun.
Due to local demand, there will be a new event in Dawlish, on April 8 and 9, as well as a return to Cullompton on April 12. There will also be four different events in Exeter, plus roadshows in Exmouth, Sidmouth, Crediton, Tiverton, Honiton and Feniton.
The popularity of the futsal day at half-term has led to two such events being scheduled for the Easter holiday period – the first on April 2 and the second on April 9, both at the Sports Hall at the University of Exeter. The cost is £12 per day and enables children to get a taste for the game credited by players such as Cristiano Ronaldo as launching the development of their careers.
Grecian Days are being held on April 5 and 12 and early booking is advised as demand is always high for these events. The days are held at St James Park, the home of Exeter City FC, and include lunch, a tour of the stadium, competitions, DVDs and games. The day runs from 10am to 3pm and costs £18, but there is an early kick-off and extra-time option for those parents who would like to drop their kids off at 8.30am and pick-up at 5.30pm for £25.

A special goalkeepers and strikers day is being held at Middlemoor on April 5 (£15), while on April 4 a Star Tots event (£6) for three to six year olds will be held indoors at St Lukes Sports and Science College. A disability roadshow will be held at St James School sports hall on April 5.
Apart from the Star Tots event, all roadshows are suitable for boys and girls aged from five to 14. The main football focus is fun and participation through team and individual games and all courses are delivered by Exeter City's FA-qualified coaching staff.
"In response to the fabulous reaction we had from our half-term roadshows, when more than 350 children attended the courses, we are delighted to have been able to increase the number of events we are running in the Easter holidays," says Scott Walker, sports development officer for the Football in the Community Charitable Trust.
