Kayden inspires next generation

As part of the Club’s new Grassroot Gains initiative, Tendring District YFC were invited to take part in a Q&A session over Zoom with Town forward, Kayden Jackson.

The Club and its Community Trust recently launched Grassroot Gains, which is a scheme that seeks to further the Club’s outreach within the local community by working with different grassroots clubs ahead of each matchday. A number of free tickets is given to each club, in attempt to inspire the next generation Town fans.

On Wednesday evening, Kayden spoke with the young group, answering questions, ranging from what the training schedule includes with the new manager to what his favourite animal is.

The Tendring District players, who train in age groups ranging from U7-U14, also expressed their excitement of attending alongside their coaches on Saturday to watch Town host Gillingham. A large amount of Tendring’s group will be experiencing their first professional fixture at Portman Road, owing to the new initiative that directs young football fans that may not usually attend professional matches.

All spaces have been allocated for this season, but ff your grassroots club would lilke to register their interest in getting involved, please email for more information.
