Football Mash Up is a dedicated programme aimed at boys and girls aged 14-16 years old who have either dropped out of football or may be on the verge of doing so.
A range of partners across Oxfordshire are helping to tackle this issue by providing recreational football opportunities for players.
A Football Mash Up Centre gives young people an opportunity to have a kick around with their mates in a friendly environment. There is no pressure from the sidelines and the sessions are fun, safe and sociable.
