FOOTBALL stars have kicked off a new youth project.

Aspiring young footballers got the chance to quiz three Black Cat stars in the launch of Kickz, in County Durham.

Players Frazier Campbell, Ji Dong-Won and David Vaughan were on hand to help launch the new programme.

The project, which will be delivered by the SAFC Foundation and housing association Derwentside Homes, aims to help 13 to 19-year-olds develop their potential.

Foundation chief executive Lesley Spuhler said: “The foundation has had some fantastic results in other areas and I’m sure we will see the same success in Derwentside.”

The award-winning Kickz programme was originally developed by the Football Foundation, Metropolitan Police and the Premier League and uses the power of football to engage with young people in local communities.
