This week Jen Morrison, Account Manager from New Directions Wirral office has been busy visiting Wirral and Cheshire Primary schools who are competing in the Tranmere Rovers Football tournament on Friday 2nd October 2015. For the past couple of years, New Directions has been working closely with Tranmere Rovers in the community in supporting this fantastic opportunity for local primary schools to show case their football whilst enjoying a bit of healthy competition.
Jen was accompanied by New Directions Business Development Officer, Sue Abrahams who really enjoyed seeing the positivity which was evident in each school. Sue commented ‘All schools are really excited to be taking part and hoping to do well. It really is a great community project’.
