Since 2014 First Kicks have used the homes of Leyton Orient FC and Colchester United FC to give 10,000 children the opportunity to be a pro for the day! Scoring goals and celebrating in front of family and friends is a thrill that every football mad child should experience!

Players from age groups u7-u12 participate in a brilliant day of football. Children enter through the players entrance, have team talks in the changing rooms and walk onto the pitch through the players tunnel. The champions league anthem greets them as well as cheering spectators!

Medals for all players and trophies and player of the days are awarded at the end of tournament presentation.

It truelly is a day to remember for teams, players, coaches and supporters!
