Founder of Nottingham football coaching group invited to No 10 Downing Street

Over 2,000 residents of all ages enjoy taking part in football sessions with Mapperley All Stars Coaching (MAS).

MAS was formed in 2016 by Carlton’s very own Nathan Kenney who is a sports champion and Tom Randall MP had the honour of introducing him to the Secretary of State for Sports in Number 10 on Tuesday!


Speaking after the Downing Street reception, Tom Randall MP said: “Mapperley All Stars Football Coaching provide fun and friendly football coaching to children aged 18 months and above, including mixed and girls only sessions.

“Formed in 2016, with just three children playing in a local park, MAS Coaching has now grown to over 2000 children playing football each week.

“Thank you to Nathan and the MAS team for providing Gedling residents with such fantastic football sessions.”
