Do you know any little ones who might be interested in volunteering as ball boys or girls for Coventry United?

“As Coventry United F.C. starts its preparations for kicking off at The Butts Park Arena, an exciting opportunity has arisen for football mad youngsters,” said a spokesperson.

“As part of Coventry United’s senior men’s’ and Coventry Ladies F.C. preparations for the 2017-18 football season, the Club are looking to recruit a team of ball boys and girls to assist during match day.”

And Peter Reynolds, Chairman of Coventry United F.C., added: “As we make plans for the start of our first games at The Butts Park Arena, we want to make sure that we kick off smoothly.

“We have already made some important signings on the pitch, are now looking to grow our team of ball boys and girls.

“Coventry United has community involvement at our heart and is building our Club on the principles of fairness, equality, innovation, integrity and transparency. With this in mind, we see our off pitch team, including our ball boys and girls, as essential for our ongoing success.”
