New goals for Everton as youngsters back Community charity relaunch.

EVERTON Football Club is promising to continue promoting sport among disabled children in Merseyside as they relaunch their charity.

Children from Alder Hey Hospital will release 1,000 balloons just before the club's 3pm kick-off against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday to mark the launch.

The charity will be known as The Everton Foundation, dropping its previous title, Everton in the Community, with the organisation promising a new set of ambitious goals, doubling the scale of its activities.

Everton manager David Moyes said: "The work carried out by our Community staff and coaches is something the club is very proud of and I am sure that, under the new title, all the projects and initiatives will continue to flourish." Everton captain Phil Neville joined in a coaching session with disabled youngsters at training ground Finch Farm, Halewood, ahead of the launch.

Neville said: "The work that the coaches put in is terrific and it's great to be able to join in with the youngsters.

"The kids are so enthusiastic and they clearly thoroughly enjoy playing football. "
