Football Based Children’s Activities While Staying Safe

The Football Supporters Association (FSA) recognises one area requiring particular attention for millions of families is how to provide children with creative activities to fill the days, as many are now faced with the ongoing new reality of home schooling.

The FSA have therefore created a series of worksheets for children to do whilst at home, which both the FSA and the Foxes Trust hope can help fill the day a little for those of you with kids, while gently educating as to the core ethos of supporters and fan groups.

Hopefully these will help offering another creative and learning activity to add to your schedule. They are most appropriate for primary school age children but can also work as a prompt for ideas and writing topics for middle and secondary school children, too.

4 Years Ago

Any fans with a social media accounts will have seen numerous recollections over this weekend about our club clinching the title on May 2nd when all eyes were on a game in London which we didn’t even play in and the players party that followed straight afterwards at Jamie Vardy’s house.

However, there is no doubt the title was won by a season of great team performances which broke the stranglehold the “big six” (and even some of them hadn’t won the title) had on the Premier League

We think this Guardian feature piece from the time, which features interviews with the Birch, club historian John Hutchinson and Foxes Trust founder member Lynn Wyeth gives an good overview of the achievement while recognising that the club faced possible extinction only 13 seasons earlier

Missing LCFC and Keeping Safe

While we are sure everyone reading this article is desperately missing their fix of football and wondering how long it will be before we see a player in an LCFC shirt kick a ball, most likely on TV or a football stream, and how much longer before we enter a King Power turnstile and reclaim our seats, our current priority is keeping safe and well

The Foxes Trust Board would like to pass on our best wishes to every LCFC fan during this difficult time and pass on our condolences to any LCFC fan who has lost a family member or friend to Covid 19

The Foxes Trust Board is contacting Trust members to check how they are doing during this time as well as having a chat about football if they would like to

For all members who have supplied an e-mail address, the board will be contacting them with further details before making the phone calls
