Dale’s Football in the Community Trust has teamed up with Unlimited Potential to deliver a programme to people who suffer from depression.
The 'It’s A Goal' initiative is a free 11-week course which has helped more than 50 people in the past two years.
Bobby Greenwood, It’s A Goal Coach, explains more: “We help men who are struggling with low confidence, poor self-esteem, anxiety or depression get their lives back on track. The initiative engages with those who struggle with traditional therapies and clinical settings - and it works.”
Learning from football, It’s A Goal is run at Spotland Stadium for two hours once a week. It features communication skills, stress management techniques, assertiveness, relaxation and self-development. It does not involve playing football.

It’s A Goal is run by Unlimited Potential and funded by Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale Clinical Commissioning Group, in partnership with Rochdale AFC.
