Youngsters Tackling Skills with BBC Sport
Manchester United's Wayne Rooney with Foyer residents

BBC Sport has teamed up with the Football Foundation and the Foyer Federation to bring you the best sports reports from budding young journalists around the country.

Foyers helps over 10,000 disadvantaged young people every year to escape the "no home, no job, no home" cycle, and is one of the UK's largest providers of youth housing.

Tackling Skills is a project that aims to help Foyers residents develop their literacy and communication skills by using sport to inspire, motivate and re-engage them.

Working closely with BBC sports journalists, they receive media training and attend interviews, press conferences and matches where they write a report for the BBC Sport website.

The 2004-05 programme has been funded by the Football Foundation after successful pilot projects with London Wasps, QPR, West Bromwich Albion and Walsall FC.

Aston Villa, Charlton, Everton, Leeds, Manchester United, Notts County and Portsmouth are on board this time.

Match reports will appear here and you can visit the website link on the right-hand side for more information on the Foyer Federation.
