Weeks of Action: League 2 review

We take a look at the League 2 clubs that took part in our #WeeksOfAction celebrations over the first weekend.

This week we kicked off the first weekend of #WeeksOfAction, with four clubs from EFL League Two supporting the campaign.

Unfortunately with no fans in the stadium, Bolton Wanderers, Newport County, Port Vale and Scunthorpe United all took to the pitch in their Level Playing Field branded t-shirts on Saturday afternoon ahead of their 3pm kick-offs.

 

Bradford City and Oldham Athletic designated their Tuesday night fixtures to Weeks of Action.

Many of the clubs worked closely with their foundations to produce fantastic Weeks of Action social media coverage for those fans unable to be in attendance as they usually would be.

This week we will focus on Bolton Wanderers who celebrated access and inclusion closely with the club’s Community Trust.

They showcased the work that has been completed over the pandemic with football challenges for disability players and supporting disabled people to maintain or become physically active and will continue to do so for Weeks of Action and beyond.

Bolton Wanderers Community Trust shared plans in their matchday programme on their disability engagement plans for the future.

The Trust also helped to promote physical and mental wellbeing, when restrictions allowed. Their Healthy Goals group were offered face to face sessions including a weekly walk and Super 1s Cricket in Queens Park.

Football sessions continued over the lockdown period with staff utilising technology and social media to deliver online football challenges for both adult and junior disability players.


Thank you to all clubs involved for the support.

#WeeksOfAction continues to run until Sunday 14 March.
