Blue Skies over Stockport

With the coronavirus ravaging our health, well-being and livelihoods, it is fantastic to share with you a great news story.  Stockport Volleyball Club, affectionately known as “the S’PORT”, is delighted to have been awarded a generous grant to enable an additional outdoor court and indoor volleyball court to be established in the Borough.  This has only been made possible through the Manchester Airport Community Trust Fund (MACTF).

The MACTF is a registered charity and was established to promote, enhance, improve and protect both the natural and built environment in our local community.  On the current pandemic, it says: “During this extraordinary and difficult time, we know community groups large and small will be challenged with the current COVID-19 and moved in ways that seemed unimaginable just weeks ago. The Trustees at Manchester Airport Community Trust Fund would like to assure groups that our first priority is to continue to support people and communities through our funding in the best way we can.”

Chairman, at the S’PORT who received the notification said: “We are absolutely delighted by the news – this will bring so much joy to the existing and future participants to our sport locally.  We will endeavour to start collating all evidence as required to be fully compliant with the terms of the award. Thank you Manchester Airport Community Trust Fund”.

the S’PORT vlog 3 – Liz Norris #boxing [July 2020]

S’PORT vlog with an interview of Liz, former boxer, now a Director at England Boxing.  We took our lives into our own hands by agreeing to this Interview – and she took it easy on us.  A fan of Roy Keane and she explains why? Articulate and especially interesting on her opinions on ‘women in sport’.

Of enjoyment to anyone interested in football and sports in general – and interviewed by Host, Adrian Stores of www.acrobatfcsm.com.

the S’PORT vlog 2 – Timur Direkler #football [July 2020]

S’PORT vlog with an interview of Turkish ‘Sporting Director’.  We educated him in the true meaning of his name.  In turn, he shared the transition from officiating in the Super Lig to returning to grassroots refereeing in Greater Manchester, United Kingdom.  The highs and lows of being an intermediary were explored and finally the latest quest to acquiring, building and launching his own football club, close to his home Town of Izmir. Of enjoyment to anyone interested in football and sports in general – and interviewed by Host, Adrian Stores of www.acrobatfcsm.com who couldn’t resist the occasional bit of banter in the native tongue.
