Reclaim the Game

Accrington Stanley Community Trust are looking for men aged 18-44 who bet often, to train with the coaches from Stanley Trust to help you get more active and avoid betting getting the better of you.

You will be offered a £60 high street gift voucher to thank you for taking part in the project! Some people who take part in the pilot will also be invited to take part in one-to-one telephone interviews or invited to a focus group with a researcher to talk about your experience. This will help us to understand anything that we need to improve. Those who taking part will be offered a £20 high street gift voucher

Reclaim the Game, delivered by Stanley Trust coaches is the first of its kind, giving you behind the scenes access and an opportunity to train with fans like you!

Delivered free of charge at the Stanley Trust’s state of the art Stanley Sports Hub by community coaches from the Trust, each week you’ll be supported to achieve positive changes to your gambling whilst also having an opportunity to train with coaches, to get fitter and more active.

Reclaim the Game is part of a larger study called the Football Fans and Betting (FFAB) study. This aims to develop a series of workshops, delivered by coaches at football clubs, to help men aged 18-44 reduce the amount of time and money they spend on betting.

We need help developing this and need men, aged 18-44 who want to reduce their gambling or betting, to take part in a pilot study. Running a pilot helps us look at how well the workshops work, understand what men think of them and get suggestions for how they can be improved.
